According to surveillance footage, Sanford, a passenger in Davis’ car, attempted to flee the vehicle during the argument. Davis pursued her with a semi-automatic pistol. The pursuit lasted about 20 minutes and when he finally caught her, she can seen trying to calm him down. After a few minutes, she ran away again he shot her multiple times in the back. As she lay on the ground, he approached her, aimed and fired, shooting her six times in the back of the head.

Following the murder, Davis fled to Louisiana where he remained for over a year before being apprehended in December 2022 following an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers of Houston.
