RACINE — Two Racine men are being charged after allegedly shooting at a man following an altercation.
Marsean L. Herrington, 25, of the 1000 block of Washington Avenue, is charged with felony counts of attempted first-degree intentional homicide, possession of a firearm by a felon, first-degree recklessly endangering safety and bail jumping, and a misdemeanor count of bail jumping.
Online records indicate an arrest warrant has been issued, but as of Thursday afternoon, Herrington did not appear to be in custody.
Jaquan L. Davis, 21, of the 3700 block of 21st Street, is charged with felony counts of attempted first-degree intentional homicide and first-degree recklessly endangering safety, both as a party to a crime with the use of a dangerous weapon.
Davis is currently in custody and is being held on a $50,000 cash bond, online records show.
According to the criminal complaint:
Police were investigating a shots fired incident that occurred March 5 in the 1900 block of Cleveland Avenue. A witness said he heard a commotion and saw a group of people fighting.
The fight reportedly began because Herrington’s girlfriend had allegedly been at an ex-boyfriend’s home. When Herrington saw the ex-boyfriend at McDonald’s, he reportedly followed him back to Cleveland Avenue.
The group Herrington was with reportedly got into a confrontation with the ex-boyfriend and a smaller male with glasses, later identified as Davis, reportedly pulled out a gun. Davis was identified after witnesses identified him in a photo lineup.
This caused the men to stop fighting and a group of men, including the man with the gun, got into a PT Cruiser. The car then drove north on Cleveland Avenue and when it passed a Chevy Impala, several shots were reportedly fired from the PT Cruiser.
Witnesses also stated they had seen Davis hand off a gun to Herrington, and they believe Herrington was the shooter in the incident.
A preliminary hearing for Davis is scheduled for Monday at the Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave.
