U.S. Marshals Service Task Force Arrests Two Wanted Knox County Fugitives in North Carolina  
Over the past 24 hours, members of the U.S. Marshals Service Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force located and arrested two suspects in the Charlotte, N.C. area who were wanted on outstanding warrants out of Knox County. 

On Wednesday night at around 6:15 p.m., the Task Force located and arrested 40-year-old Michael Ems, who was wanted on an attempted first-degree murder charge from a domestic incident that occurred in the 7300 block of Antoinette Way on May 23. Ems has been booked into the Mecklenburg County Detention Center to await extradition back to Knoxville. 

At around 9 a.m. on Thursday morning, the Task Force also located and arrested 20-year-old Johnathan Davis Jr., who was wanted on charges of first-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder in a shooting that occurred at the Red Roof Inn on Central Avenue Pike on October 11, 2020. Davis Jr., booked into the Gaston County Jail, will also be extradited back to Knoxville on those outstanding warrants. 

The Knoxville Police Department is grateful to the U.S. Marshals Service and its Federal Bureau of Investigation partners for their assistance to help locate and apprehend these two wanted fugitives.
