According to the criminal complaint he was looking for someone when he asked a group of people if they knew where someone was. That group included 21-year Richard Cook, 19- year old Jaquan Watson and 16-year old Fidel Cosby.

When Williams walked away the three allegedly opened fire on the victim, killing him. Cook was arrested on charged early Tuesday morning; Watson and Cosby are still on the run.
