Williams was driving along 12th Avenue and crashed into several parked vehicles, according to authorities. But so far, it’s not clear whether he was shot while driving the car, or if he were shot outside the car and then tried to drive away, police said. Also, authorities are trying to determine whether anyone had been in the car with Williams.

Reyes would not say exactly what part of Williams’ body had been wounded. Williams was pronounced dead at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, police said.

Authorities are asking that anyone with information about the case call Det. Sgt. Ivette Otero or  Det. Ed Lugo of the Paterson Police Department at 973-321-1120 or Det. Mark Petterson of the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.
