MIAMI – One of the three men arrested Tuesday after a wild police chase appeared before a Miami-Dade County judge Wednesday afternoon.

Police say 29-year-old Dayshun Davis is one of the four people who bailed out of a white Dodge Charger after a high speed police chase on the Florida Turnpike through the Florida City and Homestead area.

Arrest records show the men in the charger also threw two guns out of the car, onto an entrance ramp to the turnpike.

Davis faces charges of attempted felony murder, being a criminal in possession of firearm, and using or displaying a firearm while committing a felony.

Police say a drive-by shooting on a Florida City home, followed by an attempt to retaliate for that drive-by with another shooting, are what set off the high-speed chase.

The retaliatory shooting that Davis is accused of being a part of left a man and woman with gunshot wounds.

A police report obtained by Local 10 News the man, his girlfriend and her child ducked down to avoid being hit by bullets while riding in their white Nissan Altima.

Both adults were hit by gunfire and drove the car, which had been riddled with bullets, to Homestead Hospital, where they told police the shots came from a white Dodge Charger.

It didn’t take long for police to find the car, and Tuesday’s chase ensued.

Davis was not assigned a bond Wednesday, meaning he will remain behind bars, at least until his next court appearance.
