FOX 9 reported that the suspect was associated with Williams' ex-roomate, who was evicted from the home they shared just days before Williams was fatally shot in the abdomen. 

Williams was the founder of Black Coalition clothing, "a freedom of expression afrostreet clothing line" in Minneapolis, in addition to being known as a local activist who helped organize the protest of the 4th Precinct after Jamar Clark was shot and killed by police in November of 2015. 

Williams is also the brother of former city council candidate Raeisha Williams.

Strickland-Green is facing a 2nd degree murder charge and his bail has been set at $1 million.
