Southaven murder suspect has previous murder charge on record

Andre Davis was still at large Thursday, a suspect in a murder that occurred Monday in Southaven. An inspection of court records shows that it is not the first time Davis has had a run in with the law.

Davis was out on bond from a previous murder in Memphis when Monday's Southaven crime occurred. There, Angela Boyle was shot in the chest in the parking lot of the Civic Center Apartments. Witnesses say Davis pulled the trigger.

He is also a suspect in a murder in Memphis in May. In that case, he got a $115,000 bond. Jennifer Donnals, spokesperson for the Shelby County District Attorney General, said that was set at a correct amount.

"It was the D.A.'s position that was a sufficient bond for the charges he was facing," she said, "He made it and he was out on bond."

Davis was charged with second degree murder in the death of Charlie Gipson.

According to an affidavit of complaint, Andre Davis was seen walking up to a group of people at a Memphis home. He had a stick, and witnesses said he was seen pulling a hand gun out of his pocket. One member of the group to the back, and two shots were heard. Charlie Gipson was found down the street behind a house dead.

Andre Davis gave alluded police for awhile, but they eventually caught up with him, and so did the murder charge. Davis got a $115,000 bond, even though his past was far from clean. His criminal record included included drug charges, a felon in possession of a hand gun, aggravated assault, and driving while being an habitual motor vehicle offender.

Now police say he's on the run again...a suspect in the Southaven murder.
