Suspect Strikes Two With Vehicle After Shooting

Around 2 AM on Saturday at Morgans, located at 2715 E. Ash Street, a subject, later identified as 23-year-old Di’Twan Shyheim Davis of Goldsboro, was asked to leave due to an altercation with other patrons inside. Davis reportedly went to his vehicle, removed a handgun from the trunk and fired several shots before getting into his vehicle. Wayne County Sheriff’s Office Deputies that were present working an off-duty assignment challenged Davis, ordering him to stop and exit the vehicle. Davis then fled in the vehicle at a high rate of speed from the location striking one Wayne County Sheriff’s Deputy. Davis then also struck a civilian with the vehicle as he fled. The civilian was later identified as 24 year-old Devonte Duprel Jamaal Harris of Goldsboro. Inside Davis’ vehicle was an unrelated passenger, identified as 21 year-old Jyrus Andre Langston of Goldsboro. Langston had been sleeping in the back seat and was not involved in the earlier altercation. 

Shortly after fleeing the scene, Davis was involved in a traffic crash when the vehicle he was driving struck a telephone pole at the intersection of E. Ash St. and Durant St. Davis was taken into custody without further incident. Davis was then transported Wayne UNC Health where he was treated and released. The deputy that was struck by the vehicle was also treated at Wayne UNC Health and released. Harris was treated briefly at Wayne UNC Health where he was listed as critical before being airlifted to Vident Health located in Greenville.

Davis was charged with one count Assault with a Deadly Weapon on a Government Official, one count Felony Serious Injury by Vehicle, two counts Felony Hit and Run Causing Serious Injury/Death, one count Possession of Firearm by a Convicted Felon, one count Possession of Stolen Firearm, two counts Reckless Driving to Endanger, two counts Driving While License Revoked not Impaired, and one count Discharge a Firearm within the City Limits along with other traffic infractions. Davis received a $110,000 secured bond.

    I have a question. Do police automatically check to see if a person is on drugs or drunk when there is a crime like this?
