    Dayton men charged for unlawfully possessing firearms

    Three Dayton men were charged Thursday with gun-related crimes.

    Davonte Hall, 27, and Demarque Demons, 27, were each charged by a federal grand jury in separate indictments. Hall was charged with unlawfully possessing a firearm as a previously convicted felon. Demons was charged with using and carrying a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking offense and possessing heroin with intent to distribute.

    Edward Clark, 33, was also charged by criminal information with unlawfully possessing a firearm as a previously convicted felon.

    They are among more than 20 area men charged federally with gun crimes in Dayton in the past 90 days.

    “We’ve recently seen historic levels of gun violence in our cities,” said David M. DeVillers, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio. “The year has also brought unique challenges to police and prosecutors who combat this violence. It is vital that we work together and with the community to target the extremely small population of violent offenders who create such a huge and horrific impact on our communities.”

    Hall allegedly caused a high-speed chase with local law enforcement after striking a Montgomery County deputy cruiser on Sept. 16, 2020. Prior to being disabled by marked police cruisers, Hall drove on a rim of a tire for several miles into oncoming traffic in an attempt to elude law enforcement. Hall’s vehicle was eventually boxed in by law enforcement, and Hall was found to be in custody of pistol with an extended magazine. Hall was previously convicted in Montgomery County of assaulting a police officer.

    A criminal complaint details that Demons allegedly fled from law enforcement at a high rate of speed after an attempted traffic stop. When subsequently arrested, officers recovered a firearm, as well as heroin and a digital scale.

    According to court documents in Clark’s case, investigators with the Regional Agencies Narcotics and Gun Enforcement (RANGE) Task Force allegedly found a handgun between a mattress and box spring in Clark’s bedroom while executing a search warrant. The handgun, which had been previously reported stolen, had an extended magazine and was loaded with 22 rounds. Clark has prior convictions in Montgomery County for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and kidnapping.
