Henrico man killed during domestic incident involving victim’s ex-boyfriend; family says

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A young man is dead and a woman is fighting for her life after a shooting over the weekend in Chesterfield.

The suspect is still on the loose and police are asking for the public’s help in finding him. The search remains active to find 32-year-old Willie Williams III. Williams is about six feet tall and weighs about 150 pounds.

He’s wanted for breaking and entering and the murder of William Simpson. Simpson’s loved ones tell 8News they want the suspect behind bars for the senseless violence.

“I found out about 6 or 6:30 Sunday morning, by way of phone call,” said Edward Sheran, Simpson’s uncle.

On Sunday morning, Sheran received a call he never expected to get — his 27-year-old nephew was killed.

“To tell you the truth I was shocked,” Sheran said. “He’s not the person that you would ever thought would be involved in anything gun-related. He’s a really good guy. I’m just shocked. I’m still not believing what I’ve been hearing the last day and a half because, like I said, anything that has to do with guns or violence, he’s just the opposite.”
