BUFFALO, N.Y. — A charge of first degree attempted murder has now been added to the list of charges against Deyanna Davis.

Davis is accused of driving the vehicle that allegedly struck and injured three law enforcement officers on Bailey Avenue in Buffalo the night of June 1.

The 30-year-old Buffalo woman is already facing charges of aggravated assault upon a police officer, assault in the second degree, criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree, and criminal possession of stolen property in the fourth degree.

A New York State trooper was seriously injured in the incident.  Another State Trooper and Buffalo Police were also hurt that night. 

Testimony about that night was heard in a virtual hearing Wednesday morning in Buffalo City Court. The case will now be turned over to an Erie County Grand Jury. Judge Diane Wray continued to hold Davis on previously set bail of $200,000.
