Mesquite, Texas — The Mesquite Police Department released video of a wanted felon opening fire on police officers, who shot back and wounded him. The incident happened in the parking lot of a children’s trampoline park near I-30 and 635. On March 14, at around 8:30PM, a man called 9-1-1 to report that someone had forced his way into his apartment, while pointing a gun at him, and demanded to know the whereabouts of a family member. The suspect, later identified as Ladarious Davis, left before police tactical officers responded but couldn’t make contact with Davis, who had left the apartment complex.
Just after 8:30 p.m. as officers were wrapping up, someone told officers were that the suspect was in the parking lot of Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park on LBJ Freeway. Bodycam shows officers arriving at the scene and with guns drawn approaching a man in a gray hoodie and repeatedly telling him to put his hands up. Davis, who was carrying a backpack, pulled a gun from the bag and fired three shots at officers who returned fire. Davis, 28, tried to run from the area but was shot in the neck, fell to the ground just outside the business, and was arrested at the scene. No officers were injured. Davis was treated at a local hospital, released and jailed. He is facing aggravated assault of a public servant and burglary charges.
