Fairfield police shoot 2 wanted men sought in separate shootings

FAIRFIELD, Calif. (AP) - Authorities in Northern California say officers shot two armed suspects who were being sought for attempted murder.

Fairfield police say the shootings occurred when federal investigators tracked down 27-year-old Markell Davis of Fairfield behind a Walmart Thursday afternoon. An agent shot Davis who was carrying a handgun. Officers did not say if Davis shot at the investigators.

Police then confronted a second suspect in the area, 33-year-old Cory Davis of Suisun City, about 30 minutes later. Officers shot Cory Davis, who also was carrying a gun.

Both suspects were taken to a local hospital. Their conditions are not known.

No officers were injured.

The suspects were being sought in connection with two separate shootings in Fairfield and nearby Vacaville in February. It is not known if they are related.
