POCOMOKE, MD – Maryland State Police have arrested a suspect and charged him in connection with the fatal shooting of a man on August 11, 2020 in Pocomoke City in Worcester County.
The suspect, identified as Marion Maddox, 18, of Pocomoke, Maryland, is charged with first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and illegal transport/possession of a weapon. He is being held at the Pocomoke Police Department for processing.
Shortly before 4 p.m. on Tuesday, the Pocomoke Police Department received a 911 call for a shooting victim in the 500 block of Bonneville Avenue in Pocomoke, Maryland. Upon arrival, officers located the victim, who was identified as Deavon Dwight Davis, 28, (DOB 07/19/1992 DOD 08/11/2020) of 31293 Boggs Road, Painter, Virginia, and who had been shot multiple times.
Davis was transported by ambulance to the hospital but was declared deceased by EMS personnel before he arrived. Investigators from the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit were asked to assume the investigation. They were assisted by investigators from the Maryland State Police Criminal Enforcement Division Lower Shore and the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation.

According to a preliminary investigation, Maddox ran toward the victim in the area of the 500 block of Bonneville Avenue and fired multiple shots. Maddox then fled the scene and ran into a nearby wooded area.
Maryland Troopers arrested Maddox without incident around 2:15 a.m. on Wednesday. A motive for the shooting has yet to be determined.
Davis was charged in Anne Arundel County by Anne Arundel County Police Cpl. Gregory Tyzack with possession with the intent to distribute drugs and possession of more than ten grams of pot on August 30, 2017, with the charges still pending in Anne Arundel Circuit Court. The charges will soon be dumped to Davis’s demise. Deavon Dwight Davis was charged with felony possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, and illegal possession of a firearm in Accomack General District Court on April 29, 2019.
Davis was scheduled for sentencing on April 3, 2020, in Accomack Circuit Court following his indictment by the Accomack Grand Jury for possession of a gun while distributing drugs.
Attorney Carl L. Bundick represented Davis.
Sentencing for Davis may have been delayed due to the suspension of courts and emptying of jails by Virginia officials, resulting in Davis being loose on the streets, but, unfortunately for him, the police must have kept his gun.
Court action in Worcester Circuit Court will begin to wind up for Maddox where he will be given a fast track to prison and better hope he doesn’t get out on bail as a retaliatory strike by friends of the deceased, which is a routine event in Baltimore, might alleviate the expense for the taxpayers for a long legal process to keep Maddox in prison for life.
