Davis was arrested on July 1 in an unrelated case on a family violence charge of aggravated assault and was still in custody, according to police. He was then charged with three counts of capital murder and one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, the Houston District Attorney’s Office said.
The 10-year-old girl who survived had called her grandmother to tell her she and her family had been shot, and the grandmother called police, the Chronicle reports. The girl survived by “playing dead,” the paper reports. She was reportedly shot in the arm.
KPRC reports the suspect came to the door and demanded money from the family. Then he allegedly shot the victims in the head at point-blank range, according to the Chronicle.
Davis was identified through an anonymous tip, the Chronicle reported. Police were searching for a second suspect in the case, KPRC reports.
