DeKalb County police say Carl Williams killed a woman at a Decatur apartment complex.

A week after a woman was shot to death at an apartment complex in DeKalb County, police are still searching for her family. 

Authorities have not released the identity of the 21-year-old, who they say was killed Dec. 2 in the 200 block of Glen Hollow Lane where she lived with Carl Williams. Police have not confirmed what his relationship is to the woman. 

Williams, 23, who was charged with murder, told officials he accidentally shot the woman while the two were playing with a gun, according to arrest warrants. Police said Williams called 911 after the shooting. 

But detectives believe there is more to the story. 

“Investigators believe there was some kind of physical altercation between the two before the shooting,” DeKalb County police Lt. Lonzy Robertson told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 

Investigators walked into the Decatur apartment and found the woman “with an obvious head injury” and “no signs of life,” according to the report.

Warrants stated Williams threw the gun in a creek, but it was later found by officials. 

Williams remains in the DeKalb County jail without bond.
