At the scene, officers found the 62-year-old victim with a gunshot wound. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he later died.

After a preliminary investigation, police said a Buick sedan circled the block several times before the deadly shooting.

The victim was on the side of the street with some friends when they noticed the vehicle.

The suspect vehicle stopped nearby, and the victim reportedly walked to the Buick.

A fight broke out, and police said Williams shot the victim, took his wallet, and ran.

He reportedly fired two more shots into a crowd of people who were gathered nearby. Luckily, no one else was hit.
