According to Erskine, a cellphone video taken of the shooting in Tallahassee showed a suspect wearing a “distinctive red baseball cap and red Gucci belt.” On July 20, federal agents searched Williams’ Jonesboro home and found four guns bought with Williams’ fake ID, empty boxes for other guns, a red baseball cap and a red Gucci belt. Williams was arrested later the same day.
“It is illegal for any convicted felon to possess a firearm,” acting ATF Atlanta Special Agent L.C. Cheeks Jr. said. “These illegally purchased firearms will more than often be used in violent crimes and it is these types of guns that we need to get off our streets.”
Williams was indicted by a federal grand jury Aug. 17 before he was arraigned Thursday, Erskine said. The case continues to be investigated by divisions of the ATF in Atlanta and Newark.
