Homicide Detectives investigate a shooting in the Goodwin's Market parking lot

DATE/TIME: July 11, 2019           9:17 p.m.
 
INCIDENT:   Homicide Investigation
 
LOCATION: 24089 Lake Gregory Dr., Crestline – Goodwin’s Market parking lot
 
SUSPECT:   Sammy Lee Davis, 29 years old, resident of Crestline
 
VICTIM:        27-year-old male
                      
 
SUMMARY:
On Thursday, July 11, 2019 at 9:17 p.m. deputies were called to Goodwin’s Market for a call of shots fired in the parking lot. Deputies arrived and found Sammy Davis on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound and an off-duty nurse administering medical aid. Davis was transported to St. Bernadines Hospital where he was pronounced deceased at 10:12 p.m.
 
Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives responded to conduct the investigation.
 
Detectives found that the victim was leaving Goodwin’s Market and was approached by three men in the parking lot. The victim recognized one of the men as an associate of the suspect that assaulted him in January 2019, which resulted in hospitalization. He felt threatened as the three subjects approached, verbally taunting him, and retrieved his firearm from a compartment in his car. One of the subjects, Sammy Davis, grabbed the victim’s shirt and punched him multiple times. The victim fired his gun, striking Davis and stopping the assault.
 
The investigation will be submitted to the District Attorney’s Office for review.
 
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information, or anyone who witnessed the incident, is asked to contact Detective Eric Ogaz, Specialized Investigations Division – Homicide Detail at (909)387-3589. Callers can remain anonymous and contact WeTip at 800-78CRIME or www.wetip.com.
