FAIRFIELD-

Two men shot by officers Thursday in Fairfield have been identified.

Markell Davis, 27, was shot by a federal task force member in the parking lot of the North Texas Street Walmart after he allegedly showed a handgun. Officers fired shots at Davis, hitting him in the head and right hand.

Davis was wanted in connection with a Feb. 17 shooting.

Less than an hour later, 33-year-old Cory Davis was shot by a Fairfield Police officer at the apartment complex across the street. Davis was seen getting in and out of several cars in an attempt to hide from police. He eventually stopped and hid in a car containing several children believed to be related to Davis.

Davis then tried to run into an apartment complex near North Texas Street and Cement Hill Road. Officers saw Davis was reaching for his waist and fired at Davis, hitting him in the upper right leg. It was later discovered Davis had a handgun hidden in his pants.

Davis was wanted in connection with a Feb. 19 shooting in Vacaville.

Both men are at the hospital for their non-life threatening injuries.

While searching for the Davis brothers, detectives found evidence of drug trafficking in the apartment, which belonged to 30-year-old Kelly Davis, the Davis’ sister. After gaining a search warrant, officers found narcotics for sale, ammunition and magazines for a handgun similar to the one found on Markell Davis. Kelly Davis was arrested for possession of drugs for sale and maintaining a drug house.
