Alleged Murderer Denied Bail

A Baltimore man, who allegedly shot a victim 10 times almost two years ago, was denied bail on Sept. 22 at the Baltimore City Circuit Court.

Davon Douglass is charged with first-degree murder as well as firearm use in a violent crime and firearm possession with a felony conviction.

He was previously convicted on assault charges in 2014 and drug charges in 2013 and 2017.

The victim, 30-year-old Kris McCoy, was found suffering from gunshot wounds on the 6100 block of Boston Street on Oct. 27, 2019. He later died from his injuries.

Homicide detectives identified a suspect and obtained an arrest warrant for Douglass.

A motion was filed for Douglass to be released on home detention by defense attorney Benjamin Charlton on Wednesday. Charlton argued that during the investigation, no progress was made and when police interviewed witnesses, no one identified Douglass at the scene.

Charlton also mentioned that only one witness said that Douglass at the scene. The witness allegedly tried to speak to Douglass while he was in jail.

The prosecution refuted the defense’s statement, saying no one tried to talk to Douglass while he was incarcerated. The prosecutor also said evidence was given to the defense multiple times.

Pre-trial services recommended for Douglass to not be released. He is scheduled for a zoom hearing on Dec. 28.
