Most wanted fugitive arrested by SF police on suspicion of weapons offenses

A man on the U.S. Marshals Service most wanted list of fugitives in Northern California was arrested by San Francisco police early Wednesday after a brief standoff in Antioch, police said.

A tactical team served a search warrant for Ulysses “Bear” Davis, 36, a known gang member whose last known residence is in The City, at a house in on the 5000 block of Crestpark Circle around 6 a.m., police said.

Davis was booked at the Federal Building in San Francisco on outstanding warrants for attempted homicide and weapons violations, including using an assault rifle, police said.

He had been on the run for six years before police found out he was inside the house in Antioch. Officers made no delays in arresting him, knowing that he would “very likely” escape if they waited any longer, police said.

Davis was alleged to have used fake names and identification cards while on the run, and is a native to Hunters Point, Sunnydale and South of Market, according to the website Northern California Most Wanted, which the San Francisco Police Department links to. “Davis has an extensive weapons history and is considered armed and dangerous,” his wanted poster reads.
