🚨 TPA Snapshot: Shooting 🚨

On March 13th, just after 10 am, Tyler Police officers responded to a report of a shooting at Liberty Arms Apartments located at 2601 N. Broadway. Inside one of the apartments, a 3-year-old child had been shot in the buttocks. The child, alert and awake, was swiftly transported to UT Main in Tyler by EMS.

Tyler PD officers located the suspect, Darius Jubarne Davis, a 30-year-old male from Tyler, on 26th St., across the street from the apartment complex. Davis was apprehended and taken into custody. It's worth noting that Davis and the child's mother are acquaintances, suggesting that this was not a random shooting.

Thankfully, nobody else was injured in the incident. However, Davis sustained injuries unrelated to the shooting and was transported to UT Main on Beckham prior to being booked into the Smith County Jail.

In a recent update, Darius Davis has been released from the hospital and is now in custody at the Smith County Jail. He faces charges including Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Possession of Marijuana, Manufacture/Delivery of a Controlled Substance, and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon.

Furthermore, the child involved in the shooting has been transferred to Dallas Children’s Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, which is a positive development.

The case remains under investigation as authorities work to gather more information. Stay tuned for further updates as the situation unfolds. #TylerPolice #CommunitySafety 🚔
