Rest in Peace Darrent Williams

Taken from The Rocky Mountain News -
"Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was killed and two other people were wounded in downtown Denver early Monday when the occupant of a passing vehicle unloaded a handgun into the limo in which Williams was a passenger.

Williams, 24, became the city’s first homicide victim of 2007 when he was shot shortly after 2 a.m. as he and a group of friends, including Broncos wide receiver Javon Walker, were driven away from a nightclub at 10th and Broadway.

Denver police say Williams or his friends were involved in an altercation at a club called The Shelter, a dispute that may have prompted the gunman to pursue the distinctive white Hummer stretch limo a few blocks onto the northbound lanes of 11th and Speer.

There, the gunman and others riding in a white sports utility vehicle pulled alongside the limo and fired several shots, leaving bullet holes splayed alongside the driver’s side of the vehicle and shattering a rear tinted window.
