Davison was in possession of a sawed-off shotgun and was sentenced on possessing firearms as a convicted felon.

    Davison had also been reported to have pointed a submachine gun at a witness in an earlier event and told them to leave the room so he could have sex with a woman. Davison eluded the police at a woman's residence, but was later caught.

    Juneau Police, Alaska State Troopers, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) conducted the investigations leading to the successful prosecutions of these cases. These cases were prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jack Schmidt.
