Javon Walker Breaks Silence, Tells HBO About Darrent Williams Death

By  | 

Englewood, Colo. (AP) For the first time, Broncos receiver Javon Walker is talking publicly about the New Year's Day drive-by shooting that killed teammate Darrent Williams.

Walker was in a limo with Williams when Williams was killed.

Walker tells HBO's “Real Sports” that he still has the bloodied shirt from that night. The segment will air Tuesday night.

“Real Sports” says another Broncos receiver, Brandon Marshall, and his cousin were partying with Williams' group on New Year's Eve and began spraying champagne around -- some of which hit a club patron and his friend.

Witnesses say those men flashed gang signs and were escorted out of the club, then later exchanged words with Marshall and his cousin outside.

Walker says that after he and Williams tried to intervene, Williams told Walker to ride with him in his limousine, and they drove off. Less than a mile away, Williams was shot.

No charges have been filed.
