NOW: Suspect in Friday shootout had long criminal record

WEST ALLIS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The suspect in Friday's carjacking, police chase, and shootout in Franklin/Oak Creek had a lengthy history with police, according to court records.

Those records show David Marshall Jr. had been in and out of prison and jail.

He had just posted $500 to get out of jail Monday August 30.

On Friday, September 3, he was dead, killed in a shootout with police.  

The bond he paid was connected to charges he faced of attempted robbery and retail theft. Court records showed Marshall was told to stay away from the West Allis Target store and a BP gas station at 76th and Lincoln.

He was also charged in another case with possessing methamphetamine and jumping bail.

The records showed Marshall had been in and out of jail and prison for years.

In 2007, he was convicted of a prison fight as a party to a crime with living at Lincoln Hills, the state's youth prison.

In 2009, he pleaded guilty to burglary, driving a car without consent of the owner, and fleeing from police. He was sentenced to four years in prison. As part of that case his lawyer raised questions about his mental abilities. A judge found him competent after a doctor's evaluation.

Marshall was also in and out of jail in Shawano, Langlade, and Milwaukee Counties between 2016 and 2018.

He also served a Kenosha County jail sentence while in Milwaukee County's custody.

West Allis Police are leading the investigation into Friday's events and police shooting.
