Metro officers took 19-year-old Daquan Demetrius Williams, of a Rainbow Drive address, into custody after Williams and another male were observed behind Pal's Mini Mart on ACL Boulevard and Louis Mills Drive. He had been charged in the shooting of 25-year-old Javaris Smith near East Oglethorpe Avenue and Wilder Street last Tuesday. Smith sustained non-life threatening injuries.
