Man injured in police-involved shooting

Police say they have identified the man who was arrested for shooting at three detectives in Brownsville Friday night.

 

Kowon Davis, 44, has been charged with criminal possession of a weapon and menacing a police officer.

 

Police say that Davis stopped in front of a crowd in a black Lexus near Sutter Avenue, and then exited the vehicle with a gun.

 

Detectives then say they ordered him to freeze, leading Davis to open fire. Police returned fire, hitting Davis in the leg before he ran away.

 

Davis was arrested less than a block away between Howard Avenue and Grafton Street on Sutter Avenue, according to police. He was taken to Brookdale Hospital where he is in stable condition
