At that point, she stated Porter walked up to her and pointed a gun at her. The female then fled the scene on foot and said she heard gunshots, but was not aware Porter had been shot. The female called 9-1-1 and said the unknown suspects fled in a dark-colored sedan.
Further investigation identified Williams as the suspect in this case. HPD SWAT officers arrested Williams on Wednesday (December 14) without incident.
