100 Year Sentence For Driver In 2006 Shooting Death Of Middle School Student

A Hartford man has been sentenced to 100 years in prison for his part in a fatal shooting in Hartford seven years ago.

28-year old Paul Davis was the driver in the Memorial Day weekend 2006 shooting of 15-year-old Fox Middle School student Kerry Foster, Jr. and the wounding of a 14-year old.  The teens were gunned down on Clark Street.

Davis was 21 at the time.  Charged with being the driver of the vehicle in the drive-by shooting, he was convicted last month on conspiracy and criminal attempt at murder charges.

Charges against a second defendant, Ackeem Riley, are pending in Hartfor Superior Court.  Riley is already behind bars in the death of a Bloomfield High School student in November of 2006.

The Chief State’s Attorney’s office says Davis and Riley were arrested as a result of an investigation by the Hartford Police Department’s Major Crimes Division in conjunction with the Cold Case Unit of the Office of the Chief State’s Attorney and the Department of Correction.
