Denver Police Reportedly Locate Vehicle They Were Seeking in Connection With D. Williams's Shooting Death
Police in Denver reportedly have located a sport utility vehicle that might have been used in the shooting death of Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams early Monday.
Officers found a 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe abandoned near the Denver airport. The vehicle reportedly had been painted black everywhere on its exterior but the top, which remained white. Police had said Monday they were looking for a white Tahoe or Suburban.
The vehicle's rear license plate reportedly was covered with paint but its front plate matched the number being sought by police. Denver newspapers reported that the vehicle is registered to a Denver man who is imprisoned on drug and attempted murder charges. He was in jail at the time of Williams's murder but police reportedly are attempting to find out who was using his vehicle.
Williams was shot in the neck and killed when the limousine in which he was riding was sprayed with gunfire from a passenger or passengers in the SUV, according to police. Members of the group of people with which Williams attended a New Year's Eve party at a Denver nightclub had been involved in a dispute earlier in the evening, police said.
Broncos players, coaches and other team personnel participated in a memorial service for Williams on Wednesday at the club's training facility. Members of Williams's family also were in attendance. Williams's funeral is scheduled for this weekend in his hometown of Fort Worth, Tex.
