Former Bloods gang members sentenced to decades in federal prison

NORFOLK, VA—Xavier Rondell Davis, II, 21, of Norfolk, Virginia, was sentenced today in Norfolk federal court to 35 years in prison for taking part in a gang-initiated assault that left one victim dead and two others seriously wounded.

Neil H. MacBride, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, made the announcement after the sentence was handed down by United States Senior District Judge Robert G. Doumar.

Indicted on May 7, 2010, Davis pled guilty in November 2011 to one count of murder through the use of a firearm and two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon in aid racketeering activity.

According to court records, Davis was a member of the Bounty Hunter Bloods (BHB) that operated in various neighborhoods in Norfolk. The BHB is a violent street gang that uses violence to dominate neighborhoods, intimidate individuals, retaliate against their enemies, and to make money. On July 27, 2007, approximately a dozen teenage BHB gang members used some female gang members—who had met the three victims weeks earlier—to lure the victims to a parking lot on the corner of 16th Bay and Pleasant Avenue in the Ocean View neighborhood of Norfolk for the purpose of robbing them. Davis was one of these gang members.

When the victims arrived at the 16th Bay parking lot, Davis and other gang members ran out from behind a building toward the victims. Davis brandished a handgun at the victims, ordering them to the ground and demanding that they give up their money and other valuables.

Davis and the other BHB gang members then started to beat the three victims with their feet, fists, and firearms. The beatings stopped twice after hearing calls that the cops were coming, which allowed the opportunity for two of the victims to escape. The third victim, James Robertson, 19, was unconscious and unable to escape.

While other gang members fled the scene after the second warning call, Davis and another male gang member returned beat Robertson further. When the police and paramedics arrived at the scene, there was no one left in the parking lot except Robertson. He was transported to Norfolk General Hospital where he died shortly thereafter. An autopsy disclosed that Robertson died from blunt force trauma to the head caused by the beating he sustained from Davis and the other BHB gang members.

This case was investigated by the FBI and the Norfolk Police Department. Assistant United States Attorneys William Muhr and V. Kathleen Dougherty prosecuted the case on behalf of the United States.
