He was in the back seat of a car that was being chased through Ladywood in Birmingham on 5 August 2008 when he was shot in the neck.

The murder took place a short while before 5.50pm when the police were called out.

He was taken to hospital but died 2 months later on 2 September 2008 at 9am from organ failure.

He had been in a Citroen Saxo car at the time and was shot at by at least two people from a silver Toyota Avensi car. The Toyota was never recovered. The registration of the Toyota car was FE03 JXW. There were four people in the Citroen Saxo car at the time.

As the Toyota car was chasing the Citroen Saxo car a man was seen on CCTV to lean out in preparation to shoot at the Citroen Saxo car.

The police said that there was no aggression shown by anyone in the Citroen Saxo car, including from Stephon Davidson. They also said that the car was deliberately targeted but that they didn't know why.
