Update on the police officer killed in Alabama....

LOWNDES COUNTY, Ala. (WPMI) – Officials are now saying Lowndes County Alabama Sheriff John Williams was shot in front of his own son.

The sheriff was shot after he approached a truck and asked the driver to turn down his music.

The suspect, 18-year-old William Chase Johnson, is the son of a Montgomery County Deputy.

Police arrested him several hours later when he returned to the scene.

Johnson made his first court appearance Monday where he was charged with murder and denied bond.

A Crenshaw County judge has placed a gag order on the case to prohibit anyone associated with the case from making any statements on the case.


There's no more info at the link...The kid will probably get life in prison is my guess. The sheriff was a beloved man in the community.

2. I don't know.

Regardless, you don't kill a cop or any other person for that matter. From all things I have read, the sheriff was a really nice man. This young man could have been having problems or he could have been a thug or involved in drugs. He won't be getting out of prison for decades, if at all.

6. He is an adult..same age as my son.

We are a death penalty state, so it could happen. It all depends on the details of the killing.

7. It's terrible

Most of mine are a little older than him; I can't imagine how I would feel, but this, on the surface at least, has the looks of a cold blooded killing. He likely won't get the DP, but at a minimum should spend the rest of his life behind bars.

8. They are not releasing any details and there is a gag order.

Things like that always make me suspicious. He could have been a druggie, a thug or what not. It will all come out eventually.

I am against the death penalty only because there are too many innocent people that have been put to death and imprisoned.

I'm fine with him being in prison for life if it was a pre-meditated murder.

9. Was the cop off duty? Why was his kid there?

Why did the shooter return to the scene? Did he think it was self defense?

I don’t know anything about the story but reading the above, did the shooter think he was arguing with some jerk telling him what to do?

This not a defense, just trying to understand what happened before the shooting started.

10. IDK and the gag order makes me wonder

I’m sure more will come out. He was denied bond. That’s all I know.

11. Not sure about Alabama self defense laws but if the dead cop was in civilian clothes

Everything just changed. His kid being there is huge.

This, as reported, was about loud music.

Was dad showing off in front of his son off duty

Was it take your kid to work day

two cops and two sons, did they all know each other (no idea how old the other “kid” was),

was there a beef between the kids, and dad was going to settle it

Keeping the kid in jail right now probably makes the most sense
