On Wednesday, a Racine Police officer spotted Davidson walking down the 1100 block of DeKoven Avenue.

Davidson ran when officers approached, hopping fences and cutting through alleys. Officers lost him in the backyard of a house in the 1800 block of Grand Avenue. As police approached the house, one of the officers found a gun left in a bush on the property line.

Police searched more and found that the lattice under the porch next door had been moved and damaged and there were fresh marks in the dirt. An officer crawled underneath the porch and found Davidson.

Davidson made an initial court appearance Thursday, during which a $10,000 cash bond was set, records show. His next appearance is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. He remained in custody in Racine County Jail as of 3 p.m. Thursday.
