The youth is also suspected of shooting a juvenile boy. Both Williams and the injured boy suffered multiple gunshot wounds. The name of the 12-year-old was not released. He's in custody at McLaughlin Youth Center. Police have forwarded charges to juvenile justice authorities.
Police say an altercation among a group of young people preceded the shooting. Witnesses at around 6:30 p.m. called police to report shots fired north of Sullivan Arena. Minutes later, a caller told a dispatcher he had been shot and that he was in woods running from the shooter.
