Teen suspect in custody after Apache Junction shooting, police say

Officers have arrested a suspect accused of shooting and killing his half-brother on Monday night in Apache Junction.

At around 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 26, police said a shooting broke out near Broadway and San Marcos drives and that 19-year-old Adam Williams is believed to be the suspect.

The victim, 30-year-old Andrew Williams, died as a result of the shooting.

Adam Williams, who was considered armed and dangerous, was last seen near Ironwood Drive and Superstition Boulevard

Authorities said Williams turned himself in to Phoenix Police on Sept. 27 "without incident." No other details were released.

The Apache Junction Police Department made a public statement during the manhunt for Williams on Tuesday.

"We don’t want him to do something stupid because of everything going through his head which is why we want to stress, his mom and family want him to be safe and turn himself in," said Apache Junction Police Lt. Tom Parker.

Detectives believe the two got into an argument before the shooting.

"From our understanding, he was born and raised in the area, so he could have friends anywhere. We do believe he is still in the area," Parker said.

As police search for the then, they say his mother has a plea for him.

"Your mom loves you and wants to make sure you’re safe. She’s asking you to go turn yourself in to the nearest police department or Apache Junction Police Department. Again, your family wants you to be safe," Parker said.
