29-year-old Tamera Davis was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault, unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony after she shot her ex-boyfriend in the neck, tried to shoot his current girlfriend and bit his girlfriend’s son on his leg for trying to help.
On November 29th, Memphis Police Officers Clark and Moore responded to shots fired with one down at the residence of 367 Jenson Road. According to the affidavit, Marcus Askew had been shot by his ex-girlfriend, Tamera Davis. Upon arrival, the officers confronted Davis, who was attempting to leave the scene in her Chevrolet Blazer.
Askew was suffering from a gunshot wound to the neck, and his girlfriend, Mosley, confirmed that Davis shot him. Mosley tried helping Askew, but Davis turned and pointed the weapon at her. When she tried to disarm her, Davis hit her in the face with the gun. Mosley stated that she had to place her hand on the trigger to prevent Davis from firing at her.
The police said Mosley’s son then got involved, which resulted in him getting bitten in the leg by Davis. A juvenile witnessed the incident and corroborated their statements, confirming Davis shot Askew. Askew was reported in critical condition from his neck wound as Memphis Fire Department transported him. All statements made by witnesses were recorded on the scene. Davis refused to give a statement and was taken into custody.
Tamera Davis was arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault, assault, unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. She was released on a $75,000 bond.
