A Criminal Court jury also convicted defendant Isaiah Williams, 32, of employment of a firearm with intent to commit a dangerous felony. He will be sentenced June 4 by Judge John Campbell.
The incident occurred on Aug. 25, 2016, when Williams confronted a 36-year-old neighbor and said the neighbor’s brother had been looking inappropriately at his, Williams’s, wife. The defendant pulled a gun from a brown bag, pointed it at the neighbor’s head and ordered him to start walking to his townhome.
The victim swung a laptop at Williams and began running away as Williams began shooting. The victim was struck eight times in his legs, including several times after he fell to the ground and as Williams was standing over him. Williams also pointed the gun at the victim’s head and pulled the trigger, but the gun was out of bullets.
Williams then struck the victim in the head with the handgun and fled.
The case was handled by Asst. Dist. Attys. Kirby May and Will Muller.
