Plymouth gunman who shot dead five people and injured others named as Jake Davison

The gunman who shot dead five people in Plymouth has been named by the police as Jake Davison.

Davison, 22, used a pump action shotgun to kill his victims in Keyham, near the docks.

A further two people who were shot are receiving treatment.


The police are looking at 13 seats of the crime.

Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer said the police took multiple 999 calls at 6:11pm on Thursday evening to an address in Biddick Drive.

Police officers were on the scene six minutes later – some were armed.

Mr Sawyer added: “I can confirm that the man known as Jake Davison, aged 22, had murdered a woman at an address in Biddick drive using a fire arm.”

“Mr Davison then left the first address and entered another on Biddick drive where he immediately shot and killed a very young girl.”

The killer then shot a male relative of the girl – an incident seen by passers-by.

Mr Davison aimed and shot at two residents – a man and a woman on the same road.

Both received significant but not life-threatening injuries.

Mr Sawyer said: “From there Mr Davison entered adjacent park land where he immediately shot a man who died at the scene.

“Thereafter he moved to Henderson Place where he shot a woman, who despite the best endeavours of first aiders at the scene, later died at Derriford Hospital.”

Davison later turned the gun on himself.
