A Loganville man has been charged in the death of Travin Davis, whose body was found on the side of the road near a Treanor Drive residence the morning of Oct. 31. 

Investigators believed the shooting happened somewhere else and the body was later dumped in a ditch off Treanor Drive. A resident spotted the body as she was leaving her home. The autopsy report confirmed that Davis, 30, was shot twice in the chest. 

"The flight path indicated that Davis was sitting in the car at the time of the shooting,” said Captain Brad King of the Baldwin County Sheriff's Department. 

After an extensive investigation, Baldwin County deputies have arrested 25-year-old Artenimus Ray Mack and charged him with murder. Mack and Davis were believed to be in Baldwin County to meet with another individual. An altercation between the two men allegedly ensued on the drive there and ended in Davis’ death. 

Mack is originally from Washington County but was living in Gwinnett County when deputies arrested him as a person of interest on Thursday Nov. 1. 

"We had a lot of people working on this case who didn't stop until questions were answered,” said King. 

He credits the hard work of several law enforcement agencies including Newton County Sheriff's Office, Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office, Washington County Sheriff's Office and the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force with assistance in the case.
