Charges Brought In Fatal Shooting Of Broncos Williams

DENVER (AP) - A Grand Jury has indicted a suspect on murder charges in the 2007 drive-by shooting of Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams.

Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey says Willie D. Clark faces 39 counts, including first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.

The 25-year old Clark is in federal custody in a separate case.

The 24-year-old Williams was shot and killed while riding in a rented limousine early on New Year's Day in 2007 after leaving a Denver nightclub.

The indictment says Williams and Clark had both been at the club with separate groups of friends, and that there had been an altercation between members of the two groups.

The indictment quotes witnesses as Clark got into an SUV, followed the rented limo carrying Williams and opened fire.
