A 28-year-old man suspected of shooting at three people with an assault rifle last week turned himself in to Moses Lake police.
James Leroy Davis III was tired of running from authorities and called police around 5 p.m. Monday to turn himself in, said Richland police Capt. Mike Cobb. Davis was staying at a relative’s house in Moses Lake.
“Mr. Davis said the pressure put on him by law enforcement had gotten to be too much,” Cobb said. “It speaks to the level of partnerships we have been working so hard to forge in the area.”
A warrant was issued for Davis’ arrest shortly after the shooting on Dec. 4 at a Richland mobile home park. Davis allegedly fired more than 20 rounds from an assault rifle into a sports utility vehicle. Police say he had an ongoing dispute with the people in the vehicle over a “litany of things.”
No one was seriously injured in the shooting.
Davis is currently being held at the Grant County jail, Cobb said. He also has multiple felony warrants out of Benton County not related to the shooting.
Davis is a transient who has ties to Pasco and Moses Lake, Cobb said.
