Around 2:30 p.m. Friday afternoon (June 21, 2019), Slidell Police received several 911 calls about a female who was shooting at people in the parking lot of the Travel Centers of America at 1682 Gause Boulevard). When officers arrived, they located three victims who claimed that Williams tried to kill them after her fiancé was fired from his job as a truck driver.
One of the victim’s, who is the owner of a trucking company, confronted Williams and her fiancé outside of an 18-wheeler in the back parking lot of the Travel Centers of America. The owner decided to fire Williams’ fiancé for poor job performance and evict them from their 18-wheeler. An argument ensued, at which time William retrieved a firearm and began firing several rounds at the owner of the trucking company. Williams then pointed the gun at the victim’s truck, and fired several more rounds inside the cab of the truck. Inside of the truck were the victim’s fiancé and their 1-year-old son. Miraculously, no one struck by the bullets.
Slidell Police officers arrived on the scene within minutes and were able to locate Williams, who was hiding in a nearby patch of woods. Williams was arrested without incident, and was charged with Attempted First Degree Murder.
