Eyewitnesses recalled seeing a red SUV with several people inside pulled up to the man as he was standing in front of the day care. They say there was no shouting before they heard gunfire.
Police say their investigation discovered it was a road rage incident, leading to Williams’ arrest.
“We saw the gentlemen who was there grabbing his arm and chest area immediately and it just seemed like it was too quick to assume anything happened,” a witness said, “but pretty shocking for anything to happen in front of a day care No parent wants the call that their child was hit by a gunshot, especially when you drop them off at day care. You assume it’s just going to be an easy Friday, pick ’em up and then you get to go home for the weekend. It could’ve been much worse.”
