Danny Davis, Tired of Minorities Having Jobs, Goes to Construction Site to Shoot at Them
Danny Davis, a 53-year-old Florence racist, er, resident, is tired of minorities having jobs in the area.
So, Davis, allegedly liquored up shortly before noon on a Monday, drove to a construction site and started shooting at construction workers, missing each and every one of them, according to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.
According to PCSO, deputies were responding to a shots fired call at the Magma Ranch housing development in Florence at 11:50 a.m. on Monday, and a deputy who spotted a vehicle matching the description of the suspect's vehicle also noticed that the driver of that vehicle had the barrel of a rifle pointed at him.
Davis missed that shot too, and he was arrested with the help of more PCSO deputies.
Davis, who had "obvious signs" of alcohol impairment, told deputies he was shooting at construction workers because he "was angry about the minorities working in the area," PCSO says.
Again, Davis didn't manage to shoot anyone, but he's being booked into jail on charges of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
