NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro police have identified the suspect of a shooting on 25th Avenue North Wednesday night who critically injured a teen male outside Resha's Market.

Kevion Larquez Davis, 18, is wanted for multiple charges, including attempted murder, after shooting 18-year-old James Anthony Webster multiple times in the 700 block of 25th Avenue North just before 9 p.m. Wednesday night, says Metro police.

Davis fired 15 rounds at Webster as he was walking out of Resha's Market and ran from the scene. Webster drove himself to St. Thomas Midtown Hospital in a black Honda Civic that was stolen in October. Metro police say they found a semi-automatic pistol loaded with eight rounds inside the vehicle.

Webster had been a fugitive for months after a fatal car collision last year on June 26 where he struck a Chevrolet Malibu at the intersection of 40th Avenue North and Albion Street, killing 41-year-old Lasundra Rice. Rice was being driven by her husband when Webster hit them in a stolen Hyundai Genesis driving over 90 miles per hour, says Metro police.

Webster, who ran from the crash scene, will be arrested after he is discharged from the hospital.

Davis is considered a dangerous threat to the community, says Metro police. Anyone who knows his location is asked to contact Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.

The motive for this shooting remains under investigation.
