“(The victim) was trying to reason with Mr. Williams and explain there was no need for him to have his gun out and that the situation wasn’t that serious,” the affidavit says. “While standing in the middle of West Perrin Avenue …Mr. Williams fired shots to the south across the roadway. (the victim) continued to walk towards Mr. Williams to reason with him, at which point Mr. Williams pointed the gun at (the victim) and told him to back up. Mr. Williams then immediately raised the gun over (the victim’s) head and fired two shots more into the air.”
The next court date in the case has not been set.
