On Friday, September 13th, 2019, at approximately 9:30AM, officers from the Dover Police Department transported Williams to the Kent County Court of Common Pleas after his arraignment at Justice of the Peace Court 7, due to Williams having an active capias out of that court at the time.  Dover police transferred custody of Williams to the Capitol Police Department.   On Monday, September 16th, 2019, it was learned by a Dover police officer who was preparing a press release on the arrest, that Williams had been released.  It was later learned that a communication error by a Dover police officer led to the release of Williams once his capias was cleared.  

At this time, Williams’ whereabouts are unknown.  Williams is still currently wanted on the original charges from the shooting incident.  An earlier release stated that Capitol Police would be obtaining warrants for Escape 3rd degree, however, those were not granted.
