The Zanesville Police Department announces they got their man. Captain Tony Coury says the ZPD Swat Team arrested 19-year-old Shaquille Davis of Zanesville on the north end of town Wednesday. Coury says Davis is facing one count of aggravated murder with a gun specification in connection with the death of 24-year-old Phillip Lawrence Kimbro Jr. His last known address was in Loraine. But he also lived in Zanesville and Cambridge. Kimbro’s body was discovered burning on County Road 15 in Morgan County last month by a tree-clearing crew. Davis was considered armed and dangerous and authorities had asked the public for help in locating the suspect. Davis is being held in the Zanesville City Jail.
