SAPD: Shooting suspect's month-long run from law ends with arrest

Roger Trudell Davis, 32, charged in double shooting

SAN ANTONIO – Roger Trudell Davis, 32, a man who had been wanted by San Antonio police in connection with a double shooting more than a month ago, has been arrested on charges related to that crime.

Davis was booked into the Bexar County jail Monday afternoon on two counts of aggravated assault.

Records indicate that a warrant had been issued for his arrest the day of the shootings, Nov. 3.

However, it is unclear where he had been for the past few weeks, and where he was arrested.

An arrest warrant affidavit stated that a 22-year-old woman told San Antonio police that she had briefly dated Davis but had broken off the relationship.

She told them that, on the morning of Nov. 3, he showed up with a gun at her home in the 5900 block of Cliff Bank and climbed into her bedroom window, the affidavit stated.

The woman and another man were asleep in the room at the time, the affidavit stated.

Police at the scene said that the woman told them she feared Davis would show up at her home, so she invited the other man over for safety reasons.

Both of them became victims, though, when Davis shot them, police said.

The woman was hit in her thighs, while her friend was grazed by a bullet on his cheek. Their wounds were considered non life-threatening.

Officers who responded to the scene did not find the gunman that day.

Police did not mention how they tracked down Davis, who already was on parole from a prior drug conviction.

Records show he also has previous arrests for aggravated assault and domestic violence.
