Police say that in the portion of the video after what was released, the alleged shooter, who is seen standing to Williams’ right in a black jacket, reach for a gun in Williams’ pocket.

Williams and the alleged shooter then wrestle on the ground before Williams gets control of the gun and runs from the store, according to police reports.

As he runs away, the unidentified suspect gets a gun from a third party and shoots at Williams at least twice.


Officers found two shell casings at the gas station. One had struck a concrete wall and the other hit a trash can.

Police have not said if the other two men in the video are involved.

Anyone who knows who the suspect may be should contact Atlanta police.
