WEST PALM BEACH, FL – On October 22, 2011, just after midnight, James Howard Jr., was shot and killed while picking up his children from a residence in West Palm Beach. Detectives from the Violent Crimes Division began an immediate investigation into who committed the fatal shooting.

On May 13, 2020, detectives procured arrest warrants for all three suspects, Dominique Wright, James Earl Williams Jr., and Shalantra Blye for first degree murder with a firearm and conspiracy to commit first degree murder with a firearm.  

On May 13, 2020, at 8:00 pm, detectives learned Williams was residing in the Palm Beach County Jail on domestic violence charges from Riviera Beach Police Department. He was immediately booked for first degree murder.
