Someone shot McKenny Davis four times at the West Hills 7-Eleven. Police have arrested the man who allegedly ordered the shooting.
The shooter remains at large.
The shooting took place at the convenience store at 1351 Whalley Ave. on Feb. 16. The victim, Davis (then 20 years old, now 21), went to the hospital in critical condition.
In the course of investigating the shooting, Sgt. David Zannelli and Detective Lynn Meekins learned that a West Hills man nicknamed “Squeak” ordered the shooting because of a “two-year-old altercation” with Davis, according to police spokesman Officer David Hartman.
Police subsequently arrested Squeak, who’s 20, on a warrant on unrelated gun charges. Then detectives interviewed him about the 7-Eleven shooting. Squeak “confessed he’d ordered Davis to be robbed and shot,” Hartman reported. Police charged him with criminal liability for acts of another, involving assault and attempted robbery.
Meanwhile, Hartman also announced Monday that New Haven police, U.S. marshals and probation officers have taken into custody a 20-year-old man known as “K-Slay” in connection with a Nov. 4 murder outside Club Mango in Providence, Rhode Island. K-Slay was on the run; he was apprehended on State Street.
