Details in the warrant for the arrest of the 27 year old have not been revealed as it's sealed, but a search warrant does state a witness had identified Green as the shooter.

FOX 9 reports that Green is associated with Williams' former roommate, whom was evicted from the duplex in which they lived just days before the fatal shooting.

The roommate threatened to kill Williams, the TV station reports, and though the roommate was out of the state when the shooting happened, Strickland-Green is said to have called him minutes after it happened.
