Arlington PD Looking For Suspect In Deadly Shooting

ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Arlington police are trying to track down whoever shot and killed a man Wednesday night at a convenience store.

Police first got wind of the shooting when a health worker at USMD Hospital called and said someone had showed up at their emergency room.

“They discovered that the individual had been brought to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest,” explained Arlington Police Department Sergeant Dace Clifton. “He’d been dropped off at the location by a friend, who left prior to Arlington PD arriving.”

The man was later identified as Kedrick Davis of Grand Prairie. The 20-year-old was rushed to Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth but died.

Police were able to track down the person who dropped Davis off at the hospital. “We have connected with that person,” said Clifton. “Investigators are following up on leads and investigating this entire situation to determine exactly what happened and specifically who’s responsible.”

Police are looking into whether the shooting occurred during a drug deal at a south Collins Street convenience store.

Anyone with information about the shooting is being asked to call the Arlington Police Department or Crime Stoppers at (817) 469-TIPS (8477). A $1,000 reward is being offered.

    First of all it doesnt matter what his facebook page says and if he is holding a stack of money I knew KD and his girlfriend Moon personally and he use to do rap shows in the Arlington area so how you know the money didnt come from the shows that he is paid to do. Either way this is somebody’s relative and you need to show more respect

    Little did Mark Zuckerberg know when he created Facebook that it would not only help dudes get chicks but expose really stupid criminals and get them killed. The police don’t hit the streets first when looking for clues to a murder they hit Facebook! Trust me, APD is very good, they’ll have this murder figured out very soon.

    msgt4u, i understand you knew him…so did my son. And when I mentioned he was killed, the 1st thing my son said was “I’m sure it was drug related” becauses everybody knew his lifestyle. Sad, nontheless for his family. Just wonder when these kids will figure out how to get jobs and not be thugs… The money is great but when you only have a 20 yr lifespan… … …

      You know Missy, what you are saying is true when it comes to Kedrick wild lifestyle!! With that being said we may speculate it was somehting to do with drugs but we don’t know for sure. I would really appreciate anyone posting a comment to hold back negative comments. Imagine if it was your son or family member. You wouldn’t want anyone bashing him after he was murdered. He is my cousin, a very close one at that. The problem is that no one takes the steps to help kids in this situation. The world is quick to criticize something but slow when it comes to helping make a positive difference. God Bless!! RIP KD!!!

    Bashing wasn’t my intent; just see it so often. Very sad. My prayers are with you and your family .
