Second Suspect in Undercover Drug Sting in Court
CHARLOTTE, NC -- The second suspect involved in an undercover drug operation in Hidden Valley faced a judge on Friday.
17-year-old Davion Drayton appeared in court for an assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill charge. The judge increased his bond amount for that charge to $100,000.
Drayton is scheduled to be in court next week for conspiracy and robbery with a dangerous weapon charges.
On June 18, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department detectives were conducting an undercover drug investigation on Snow White Lane in north Charlotte. The location was pre-arranged by Jaquaz Walker and Davion Drayton to conduct a drug transaction with an informant in the parking lot of Hidden Valley Elementary School.
After completing the drug transaction, the suspects left briefly and returned to the location carrying handguns. Detectives say they believe Walker and Drayton returned to rob the informant and a officer. Jaquaz Walker shot the informant causing non-life threatening injuries. The detectives returned fire, striking Walker. He was transported to Carolinas Medical Center with life threatening injuries where he later died.
Davion Drayton fled the scene on foot. On June 19, he was arrested at a friend's home in the Hidden Valley community.
