The younger brother of 49ers tight end Vernon Davis and Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis has been arrested for assault in Washington, D.C. and is a suspect in the murder of a tourist in the city on Tuesday.
Police are investigating if Michael Davis, 19, is responsible for three similar attacks around Washington D.C., including the Tuesday night killing of a 66-year-old man.
Vernon Davis posted on his Twitter account late Thursday night: “Just got a disturbing call from back home in washington dc. A good day gone bad! Hopefully he wasn’t involved!” In a follow-up post this morning, Davis praised Virgin America, so presumably he is flying home to his native D.C.
According to the Washington Post, police state Michael Davis was near the scene of the unprovoked attack and attempted to run, but officers apprehended him several blocks away and Davis was carrying a claw hammer in a dark-colored bag.
Michael is looking at life in prison if convicted on all charges.
