Chief: Suspect in Muskegon Hts. police officer shooting arrested

MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. – Police have arrested a suspect who allegedly shot a Muskegon Heights police officer earlier this month.

Muskegon Heights Police Chief Joseph Thomas tells FOX 17 that Dayvon Davis, 21, was arrested Tuesday at a business in Fruitport. Thomas says that Davis was armed and wearing body armor when police arrested him.

He was also arraigned Tuesday on a charge of assault with intent to do great bodily harm for allegedly shooting the officer. Davis was also arraigned on another assault charge in a separate case.

Thomas also says that Davis was cuffed with the handcuffs of Officer Robert Kooi, who was wounded in the shooting on July 6. Kooi is recovering from the wound and is expected to return to duty later this year.

A second person was taken into custody at the scene for questioning.

Muskegon Heights police was assisted by the FBI, the U.S. Marshals and Michigan State Police.

    Upton says,”We’re all about diversity.”THIS criminal is your diversity,Fred–and many millions more like him..Does anyone in government realize how low the crime rate would be without “DIVERSITY”?You wouldn’t need much of a police force,the news could go back to being a half hour show(if that),we wouldn’t need guns,locks and surveillance cameras to protect our neighborhoods,Less jails,less welfare and less of a deficit because of less social programs.Upton may be in favor of diversity,but our country is on its death bed,because of it.

    Until political correctness is exterminated so we can openly and honestly determine why over 50 percent of black students drop out of school and turn to violence, this will never end. Less than 15 percent of the population is responsible for over 50 percent of the murders/killings in this country. The Black community must address this head on.
