OSHKOSH, Wis. (WFRV) – Details have emerged regarding the shooting in Oshkosh that left one dead.

According to the criminal complaint, on April 27 around 6:30 p.m. officers responded to a reported shooting at a residence on the 900 block of Greenwood Court in Oshkosh. When officers arrived they found 29-year-old Deshaun Davis with a significant amount of blood and Davis had an apparent gunshot wound to the head.

Officers spoke to a woman who said that her boyfriend, 45-year-old Erice Grady was upstairs during the shooting and left prior to the police showing up to get rid of some marijuana.

The woman’s friend who was present during the shooting identified Grady as the shooter and identified Davis as a man who lived across the street. The friend also said that Davis walked up to the backdoor and before she could say who it was she heard a single gunshot. She told Grady that the man outside was Davis.

Grady then grabbed his bag and went outside to where his car was parked.

The friend also mentioned that the night prior to the shooting she went over to the house and was told they were lucky they recognized her voice because otherwise, Grady would have shot her. It was also said that Grady was already pointing a gun at her.

Grady’s girlfriend eventually admitted that she heard a single gunshot followed by shattering glass. She saw Grady with his arm extended and holding a small black handgun. She later admitted that Davis was not wearing a mask and did not know why he was running to the house.

During an interview on April 30, Grady’s girlfriend said that Grady had been paranoid for days leading up to the shooting. She said that for about ten days, at least once per day, Grady would be ready with his gun and would have it on him in case someone came to the residence.

Grady was ultimately detained for questioning and admitted to being at the residence at the time of the shooting but denied knowing what happened. Grady says that while he was upstairs he heard a ‘pop like a firecracker’. Grady says he then grabbed his stuff and took off.

Grady said he had some weed on him so drove to an area that he thought was far enough away and threw it out the window. When told that multiple witnesses saying he shot Davis, Grady denied multiple times shooting anyone.

A search warrant was done on Grady’s white Chevy Trailblazer, and during the search, officers found a duffel bag that had 41 rounds of 9 mm caliber bullets.

Authorities later spoke to a man with Housing Authority Maintenance for the Greenwood Court residence. The man said he went to the residence to clean up the back porch area from the shooting.

While he was there he spoke to Grady’s girlfriend who said that Davis had previously purchased drugs from Grady and another individual. It was said that Davis was told not to come over because he owed money. It was said that Grady got up and pulled out his gun from his waistband as Davis approached the door.

There was no conversation at all between Davis and Grady. Grady’s girlfreind admitted to the man with the Housing Authority Maintenance that she lied to police to try and keep Grady out of it, but eventually told the truth.

Davis was taken to Theda Clark Hospital, doctors said that Davis was shot in the left-center portion of his forehead and that he had an exit wound on the backside of his head. On April 28 around 2:30 p.m., Davis was pronounced brain dead by medical staff.

Grady is facing First Degree Intentional Homicide and if convicted he could be sentenced to life in prison.
