Man killed in Memorial Day shootout was recently released after murder sentence

The Minneapolis man killed following a neighborhood dispute on Memorial Day died from multiple gunshot wounds, and was recently released from prison after serving a sentence for murder.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner confirmed Wednesday that Larry Dwayne Davis, 35, died at 1:45 p.m. Monday. It followed a family gathering on the 2700 block of 3rd Ave. N. that erupted into a fight followed by a shootout.

Davis was previously convicted of second-degree murder in the death of 31-year-old Patrick Timberlake in July 2001, according to court records. Timberlake was shot several times and collapsed on the steps of a house in North Minneapolis, the Star Tribune says.

Davis was sentenced to 15 years and had only left prison five months ago on supervised release, the newspaper says. He was found dead on the street by authorities, with a least two dozen shots reported to have been fired. Two other people have been treated for gunshot wounds.

According to WCCO, some 14 people witnessed the shooting, the youngest of whom was just 11-years-old, but no arrests have yet been made by police investigating the homicide.

The news station spoke to Timberlake's sister Angelica following Davis' death, who said "he got what he had coming to him," though members of Davis's family said he was trying to turn his life around following his release from prison.

Davis was on "intensive supervised release" – a categorization given to those deemed a "high-risk to the public" which requires four face-to-face meetings with agents and electronic monitoring, according to the Minnesota Department of Corrections. He was due to turn 36 years old this Saturday.

No details have been released on what the fight on Memorial Day was about nor how it descended into gunfire.
