Racine Police are searching for two suspects in a shoot out that started in the 1900 block of Cleveland Avenue and ended in a McDonald’s parking lot in March.
Marsean Herrington, 25, and Jaquan Davis, 20, are both facing first-degree attempted intentional homicide and first-degree recklessly endangering safety charges by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office. Herrington also faces two bail jumping and possession of a firearm by a felon charges, according to online court records.
According to the criminal complaint issued by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office, officers with the Racine Police Department investigated a report of shots being fired in the 1900 block of Cleveland Avenue on March 5. After a fight happened between Herrington and another man over Herrington’s girlfriend, Davis gave Herrington a gun. He took it from Davis, the two got into a PT Cruiser and they drove off.
Officers on the scene recovered six shell casings from a .45 caliber automatic pistol.
As they were leaving, a Chevrolet Impala drove by and Herrington fired several shots toward the man he was fighting with. The fight then carried over to McDonald’s on Lathrop Avenue.
“A fight started, another guy pulled a gun, the fight broke up,” the criminal complaint reads.
As the PT Cruiser left, Herrington then shot at the man again as he tried to hide on the passenger side of the Impala.
Arrest warrants were issued for Davis on March 23 and for Herrington on March 16 in Racine County Circuit Court.
The Racine Police Department is looking for help in finding Herrington and Davis. However, they are considered armed and dangerous. They may be driving in a black 2004 Pontiac Vibe with the license plates of 744-YJJ.
“If you see either of these individuals or the vehicle pictured please contact police immediately. Do not approach the individuals,” the press release reads.
