A $25,000 cash only bond was set Monday for a man currently on parole who allegedly shot a woman Saturday during an altercation.
Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Carl Davis, 34, with first-degree battery and with being a felon in possession of a firearm.
According to a probable cause affidavit from Detective Donald Griffin, the woman, Kendra Dorn, was shot in the leg and told police the shooting occurred at a house on East Pullen Street. Dorn said Davis came into a bedroom with a handgun, asked her which leg she liked the best, and shot her in the leg.
Davis initially told police that he and Dorn had been at a convenience store on Blake Street when he heard a shot and saw that Dorn had been hit, He said he wrapped a shirt around her leg and took her to Jefferson Regional Medical Center.
Later, he said that he and Dorn, who is also on parole had gotten into an altercation with him over her car not being fixed and said she pulled out the gun and “started jumping around when it went off.” He also said that Dorn told him to say that she had been shot while at the convenience store so the two of them would not get into trouble.
Davis was ordered to have no contact with Dorn until the case is settled.
The Department of Community Corrections has placed a hold on Davis pending a hearing to determine if he should go back to prison where he was serving a sentence for aggravated assault and being a felon in possession of a handgun.
