Police searching for suspect in Valley homicide case
Phoenix Police are searching for the suspect in a homicide case — a shooting on Dec. 24.
Police say the victim, 29-year-old Delmarc Forrester, was shot while standing out in front of his house on Tamarisk Avenue in Phoenix.
The suspect in the case is 33-year-old Louis Davis. He is described as a 6-foot, 160-pound black male who may be driving a white 1992 Buick Roadmaster with Arizona plates ARF6934.
Forrester and his girlfriend allegedly went to pick up the latter’s 6-year-old daughter from Davis, who is the child’s father. There was reportedly then a dispute over holiday visitation.
Davis then threatened to “shoot up” the victim’s house via a phone call with the victim and his girlfriend. The victim armed himself with a large knife and waited outside, according to police.
The suspect arrived at the home and got out of his car armed with a handgun, according to police. The victim was shot standing in front of his residence and later died at a nearby hospital.
Police say the suspect and his ex-girlfriend fought over the gun, but the suspect retained the weapon and fled. He is believed to have ties in California.
