BREAKING NEWS: U.S. Marshals Apprehend Kymoni Davis in Detroit | USAO-SDWV

Davis was Indicted by Federal Grand Jury in January

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – U. S. Marshals have apprehended Kymoni Davis, also known as “Money,” in Detroit, announced United States Attorney Mike Stuart.  Davis, 31, was charged by federal indictment in January 2020 with being a felon in possession of ammunition.  He has remained a fugitive since his indictment.  The indictment alleges that on January 1, 2020, Davis possessed 9mm ammunition.  According to the indictment, Davis has three prior felony convictions in state court in Michigan.

Davis also faces state felony charges in Cabell County, in connection with a New Year’s Day shooting in Huntington at the Kulture Hookah Bar.

“Great work by the Detroit Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Service,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart.  “The people of Huntington can rest assured that my team is working closely with our federal, state and local law enforcement partners and the Cabell County Prosecutor’s Office to reduce violent crime in Huntington and hold trigger-pullers accountable.”

“ATF is committed to our law enforcement partnerships whose good work today resulted in the arrest of a fugitive wanted for violent crimes,” said R. Shawn Morrow, ATF Louisville Special Agent in Charge. “Our streets are safer due to these partnerships.”

Davis faces up to 10 years in prison, if convicted.

The Huntington Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are conducting the investigation.  Assistant United States Attorney Greg McVey is handling the prosecution.

This case is being prosecuted as part of the Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) program, the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.

Please note: An indictment is merely an allegation and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

A copy of this press release is located on the website of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of West Virginia. Related court documents and information can be found on PACER by searching for Case No. 3:20-cr-00018.
