HPD Homicide Division Senior Police Officer J. Villareal and Officer R. Lujan reported:
Davis and two family members went to an apartment at the above address where his sister wanted to confront another female relating to a prior altercation. When Davis' sister and the female began fighting in the courtyard of the apartment complex, other females joined in the fight. Davis' mother intervened in the fight and a male, later identified as Mr. Pittmon, got involved in the fight and struck Davis' mother in the mouth. At that time, Davis pulled a gun and shot Pittmon in the chest. As the crowd dispersed, Davis fled the scene with his mother and sister. Paramedics arrived and pronounced Pittmon dead at the scene.
Davis was arrested on Monday (June 15) without incident and subsequently charged.
