On the night of Friday, November 11, 2016, Williams fired a number of rounds at the victim, killing 21‐year‐old Terion Dixon, of Clayton, who was standing outside a friend's car in the 1700 block of Germantown Street.

On June 14, 2017, after a trial, the jury found Williams guilty on all counts and specifications.

Williams was sentenced to 15 years‐to‐life for the murder conviction, plus an additional 3 years for the firearm specification, which by law must be served consecutively. In addition, the defendant was sentenced to 8 years in prison for discharging the firearm over a roadway, which was also ordered to be served consecutively.

Prosecutor Heck continued, "We believe the sentence ordered today by Judge Skelton is wholly appropriate and deserved. People who commit murder should be incarcerated for as long as possible."
