Detention for Albuquerque police shooting suspect ordered

Davon Lymon 2001 (Santa Fe County Jail)

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) – A federal judge has ordered that an ex-convict arrested in the shooting of an Albuquerque police officer remain jailed pending trial.

Attorney Marc Robert said the magistrate judge on Tuesday issued the detention ruling after hearing arguments about whether 34-year-old Davon Lymon should be released pending trial.

Robert declined to comment further on the case.

Lymon is charged with being a felon in illegal possession of a firearm – a charge filed against him Thursday. He was arrested several hours after Officer Daniel Webster was shot multiple times during a traffic stop. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
