SummaryDeon Williams was pulled over for driving a car with expired plates that the officers thought had been stolen. After being pulled over Williams tried to walk away, but the officer thought he saw a weapon in his waistband and asked Williams to come over to the police car. At this point Williams started running and the police officers gave chase. When one officer cornered him, he said he saw a gun fall from Williams's waistband, and when Williams picked it up and looked towards the officer the officer fired 3 shots (though some in the area report hearing 5-8.) The car was not stolen but belonged to his girlfriend, Williams was on parole for previous drug-related charges and narcotics were found "on the scene". The two officers involved were placed on administrative leave, and after the shooting there was a 200 person demonstration.
