|Williams' 1997 Grand Marquis LS|
Helena-West Helena Police Officers fanned out to the area and found a 1997 Mercury Marquis with a shooting victim inside. According to police records, officers were on the scene within five (5) minutes of the first call and Pafford Ambulance arrived within ten (10) minutes. Unable to revive the shooting victim, Mr. Earnest Larry, Phillips County Coroner, was notified that he was needed at the scene at approximately 8:05 p.m.

Police found another vehicle near the scene which had keys in it but no driver. That vehicle is registered to Annie Blue or Antonio Robinson. It bears an Antique Car Tag and is a 1974 Chevrolet Caprice Classic which is blue in color. This vehicle was left at the scene with keys in the ignition. This vehicle has been seen making deliveries of pizza for the local Pizza Hut restaurant.
Speculation abounds as to what happened to Mr. Williams. One report is that a white male on a brown four (4) wheeler did the shooting. Another report suggests that Williams and someone had "words" earlier in the day.
