On Monday, January 1, 2006, at 2:10 a.m., Central Precinct officers were on foot in the area of Southwest 4th Avenue and Southwest Washington Street when they heard gunfire. Officers saw people scattering in the same area and discovered the body of 23-year-old Jermaine Nyron Davis lying on the sidewalk.

Investigators believe that Davis had a verbal altercation with occupants of a black, 4-door luxury-type vehicle, with lightly tinted windows. Investigators believe someone from inside the vehicle shot at Davis, killing him instantly. The vehicle sped off eastbound on SW Stark Street after the shooting. Witnesses have described the vehicle being occupied by four to five males and females, possibly white or Hispanic. Investigators believe this group may have been at other bars on New Year’s Eve.

Investigators are now releasing a sketch of a possible suspect in this case and have requested an enhanced reward for information that leads to an arrest in this case.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357).
