His name was Mitt. Not Matt.

Have inquiries out to the police, Space Ship. Will update as soon as we get more information.

Black on white murder is 18 times more likely than the other way around. You don't see the crazy mob mentality like you saw during the trayvon case. This is a shame if this is what actually happened. I wonder how many priors this piece of garbage had.

Auto-correct. Thanks, Tara.

Many feel as you do, MT.

DeKalb PD just e-mailed me to say they're still gathering info. Will update with more as soon as I find out, Space Ship.

DeKalb Police say it started from a dispute but they are not saying what the dispute was about.

My boyfriend was killed by a police car during this chase. I would love to have a little chat with him

My condolences for your loss, Janeen.

This man should be charged with double homicide. One for Mitt and the other for the pedestrian that was killed by accident by the officer responding to the scene.

Williams was in prison twice convicted of drug charges. My question is was he out on parole or on probation?
Jenna May 18, 2012 at 07:35 PM
I will remember Clinton Hightower as well Janeen! I am so sorry for your loss.

Péralte Paul, Could you find out if Williams was out on parole or probation from his prior convictions when the shooting occurred? And, is he out now? I saw the bail amount on your site earlier today and it said paid, does that mean he is out? Lenix was a champion and a very entertaining funny person, the world has suffered a great loss.

Hi, Jenna: I will double check and find out for sure. I don't think he would have been released on bail with a murder charge — especially since he has prior convictions. Will let everyone know what I find out.

Thank you. I was thinking that wasn't possible, but when I saw this http://eastatlanta.patch.com/articles/starlight-six-drive-in-shooting-suspect-faces-murder-charges#pdf-9965332 I was like what??? That didn't make sense. So I figured I ask you to help clarify it for me.

Hi, Jenna: Williams remains in jail on the murder charge without bond. Those other bond postings were for misdemeanor charges.

Thanks for looking into this for us. Sad sad sad.
