Fairbanks police received a call of shots fired in the 200 block of Farewell Street at approximately 8:45 pm on Sunday night. Police responded to the scene and contacted Williams near the residence in an alleyway. He was unarmed at the time of contact.
The caller, when interviewed, reported that Williams had been initially hollering outside the victim’s home. When the victim opened the door, he found an armed WIlliams outside. The victim quickly closed the door then heard gunfire outside and heard the sounds of breaking glass before Williams drove away in his vehicle.
The victim and his neighbor went outside after Williams departure and inspected the scene, at which time, Williams came back in his vehicle.
Unarmed when contacted, police would later find the firearm, a .380 caliber Taurus, in William’s mailbox a few blocks away.
The victim said that Williams was upset by a check that the victim cashed that overdrew William’s bank account. Police were able to verify this with a records check that showed that Williams had filed a fraud complaint on the victim on April 23.
An investigation a the scene would reveal three bulletholes, one in the door and an additional two in the wall to the right of the door. The bullet’s casings were also found at the scene. Williams was charged with Attempted Murder II and arrested.
At arraignment on Monday, Williams charge was upgraded to Attempted Murder I. He was also charged with Felony Burglary, Misconduct Involving Weapons III and DUI.
