An arrest warrant charging murder was issued against Davis on November 3. The suspect was located in the 1300 block of Powder River Drive and taken into custody without incident a couple of days later, police said.

Killeen police officers were called just after 2:30 a.m. Sunday, October 31, to the 1200 block Middleton Street because of a shooting. Officers arrived to find Brown, 39, suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives with the Killeen Police Department Homicide Unit learned Davis and Brown were involved in a verbal altercation, when Davis displayed a handgun and fired a round at Brown. The victim then pulled a handgun and discharged it towards Davis, striking him.

Davis was taken to a hospital in Temple after the shooting. He was arrested days after his release.
