MARRERO, LA (WVUE) - Three-week-old Kingston Davis was back in his mother's arms Sunday evening after she says his biological father took off with him Friday, threatening to kill him. The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office has a warrant for 24-year-old Cameron Davis' arrest. The JPSO says Cameron Davis' relative turned the newborn in to detectives
"When at the detective bureau I couldn't wait to get him (Kingston) in back in my arms. I couldn't answer their questions because I was so worried about looking at him," Marshelle Davis said. Since then, she hasn't been able to take her eyes off of her little boy.
Marshelle says Cameron showed up to her Marrero home Friday to visit the baby, but the two got into an altercation. "He wanted to fight, and I didn't want to get into it with him like that. He screamed through the door.. 'I'm a take the baby.. I'm a take the baby.' I opened the bathroom door.. Cameron holding the gun and pointing it at me," she said. Marshelle says the situation grew more disturbing when Cameron had the gun in one hand and the child in the other arm.
During the horrifying ordeal other family members witnessed the horrifying situation. "My nephew is only six. He just took him, and slapped him to the floor, and my sister, she's pregnant. He put.. he was pushing her out the way. He did the thing with the gun to her head," Marshelle said.
The new mother says she couldn't sleep all weekend worrying. Cameron Davis took off in a car that someone else was driving. He had no car seat, no food and no diapers, and she couldn't stop thinking about all his threats. "He said he (Kingston) should have been dead since May when he was in my stomach. Then he threatened to shoot him (Kingston). He said if the police come get him he was just gonna hold him has a target, and he and Kingston was gonna die together," explained Marshelle.
While she's thankful for the community's prayers and to have little Kingston back in her arms, Marshelle Davis says she still fears for their lives with the baby's father still wanted.
