“Information that we gathered during their preliminary stage of our investigation indicates that there was a verbal argument that escalated into the shooting,” Atlanta Police homicide unit commander Capt. Paul Guerrucci said on Wednesday.
Relatives told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Brooks was trying to break up an argument between her friend and Williams, and Williams retrieved a gun and began shooting.
Williams surrendered at her attorney’s Atlanta office Wednesday morning and was arrested there by police. She remains in the DeKalb County jail without bond.
Police continue to investigate.
