He and Williams exchanged words, then the younger man pulled out a gun and shot Williams several times, said Lt. Liam Gallagher of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Homicide Bureau. Williams was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:16 p.m.
Although several people witnessed the crime, few have come forward.
