18-year-old on pre-trial release in Green Apple Liquor Store shooting arrested for gun theft
BY JENNIFER CABRERA
O’rion Malike Davis, 18, has been arrested and charged with grand theft of a firearm and providing a false ID to law enforcement. He was out on pre-trial release with the condition that he not possess a firearm in connection with the Green Apple Liquor Store shooting case.
Davis was arrested with Latia Shynese Edward, 20, and juvenile Lagarius Joseph Johnson after a car driven by Edward was pulled over for having an invalid tag. Edward was asked whether there was anything illegal in the vehicle, and she reportedly replied, “No.”
Davis allegedly identified himself as Jaquan Tyrell Calhoun on-scene; the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper who wrote the report said he observed a green leafy substance on Davis and smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle. He asked all occupants to step out of the vehicle so he could search it. During the search, he reportedly found two pistols, both of which came back as stolen in Alachua County. About 3 grams of marijuana were also reportedly found on Davis’ person.
Post Miranda, all three reportedly said the guns did not belong to them, but since the guns were accessible to all three occupants, they were all arrested and charged with grand theft of a firearm. In addition, Davis was identified by his fingerprints at the Alachua County Jail, and a charge of providing false identification to law enforcement was added.
Davis, who has a juvenile history, was charged as an adult in December 2021 with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in connection with the shooting of a woman at the Green Apple Liquor Store on October 12, 2021. He was released on $40,000 bond with the condition that he not possess any firearms. His bond was revoked on May 25 because he allegedly “helped create a video in which Mr. Davis appears to be in the possession of a firearm and makes a threat that persons who get to [sic] close to the police will be made famous by his groups.” A warrant for his arrest was issued on May 25.
Davis is also part of a racketeering investigation against 11 defendants. He is being held without bond in the Alachua County Jail.
Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
“Held without bond! ” Wow.
Seems like that rarely happens these days.
Kudos to the judge, and to the FHP officer.
I cannot imagine how stressful this whole scenario was for that officer. Law enforcement has an impossible job these days. This officer did his job extremely well, regardless of how the deck is stacked against him and justice.
Liberal idiots…those laws sure worked to keep firearms out of this thug’s hands didn’t they?
He should have broke into someone’s home and let them show him one of the benefits of legal firearm ownership.
No tax dollars wasted.
sound ignorant everyone makes mistakes growing up
Pointing a loaded gun at someone and pulling the trigger isn’t a mistake; it’s a choice, and it’s a crime.
But only an idiot keeps making them over and over again.
Please reference liberal voters in Gainesville.
Its not a ‘mistake’ when a person agrees to conditions for release that include not possessing firearms and then advertises on the internet that they now possession firearms and a willingness to use the firearms to harm other people.
