Rally held in Macon to remember Sammie Davis Jr.

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A handful of people gathered in downtown Macon Friday, to remember a man who was gunned down by police two years ago.

Sammie Davis Jr. was shot and killed by former Macon Police Officer Clayton Sutton on December 21, 2012.

Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones says Davis was fatally shot three times in his chest.

Police were called to the Kroger on Pio Nono Avenue to respond to Davis allegedly panhandling in the grocery store’s parking lot.

Davis’ sister, Cheryl Davis, was joined by a couple of people in Rosa Parks Square to bring awareness to her brother’s death.

Even though it’s been two years since Davis, who was known by his nickname “Junebug,” was killed, she says she still wants answers.

“I don’t doubt that Clayton Sutton knew who Junebug was and so for Junebug to lose his life and we still don’t have any resolution,” she said. “We have this pain everyday. I just don’t want to see that happen to any other family.”

Sutton was cleared in an investigation by Macon Circuit District Attorney David Cooke’s office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
