Denver Police Looking for Leads in Darrent Williams Shooting

Posted on January 3, 2007 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

DENVER — The investigation into the shooting death of Denver Broncos player Darrent Williams is focusing on a white sport utility vehicle and interviews with the group in Williams' limousine and those at the Denver nightclub where he spent his last hours. Two other passengers in the limousine were hurt, but Williams was the only fatality. Police say they are trying to determine whether an altercation in the club, the Shelter, was linked to the shooting at 2:00 a.m. on New Year’s morning. A white Chevrolet Suburban or Tahoe pulled up next to the stretch Hummer limousine, and one or more persons in the SUV fired 14 rounds into the driver’s side of the vehicle.

Williams, other Broncos teammates, and members of the Denver Nuggets basketball team had attended a birthday celebration for Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin and New Year’s Eve party at the nightclub. Denver police are searching for suspects, but no one is in custody. The Hummer, owned by A Advantage Limousine Service, rents for $250 an hour on New Year's Eve, according to a spokesman for the company.

Williams, 24, was the Broncos' starting right cornerback and played in the 26-23 overtime loss to the San Francisco 49ers that ended Denver's season on New Year's Eve. Oklahoma State head football coach Mike Gundy said Wil liams' death was a huge loss to the school, where he played from 2001 to 2004. "It's a loss that goes far beyond the football field," he said. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, his teammates, the Denver organization, and all of those in the OSU community he touched."
