Shooting suspect has violent past, victim recovering

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT)-Police officers from 4 agencies in two counties were there as a shooting suspect is gunned down by one of their own.

Police say 31-year-old Ronald Davis led them on a chase down Interstate 75 from Lexington into Scott County Saturday morning. During the chase, officers say Davis passed over two sets of police spike strips and waved a gun towards officers as he got out of his car near the 131 mile marker. Police describe the Berea man was frantic and had just shot his girlfriend several times in a gas station parking lot.

While a gunshot victim continues to recover, we've been digging around in several area courthouses, learning more about Davis' past. Included are several Emergency Protective Orders.

Those three emergency protective orders were filed by in 2005 and 2006 in Kenton County. In addition to the history of domestic violence there, court officials say Davis was charged with trafficking cocaine, possesion of marijuana and even being a fugitive of another state.
Lexington Police say they are still looking into the shooting.
