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.

Williams, the brother of former city council candidate Raeisha Williams, was a prominent local activist, helping to organize the protest of the 4th Precinct in the wake of the shooting of Jamar Clark by police.

Among his other pursuits, Williams was the founder of Black Coalition clothing, described as "a freedom of expression afrostreet clothing line" based in Minneapolis.
