The U.S. Marshals led Western District of Washington Violent Offender Task Force is asking for the public’s help to find 31-year-old Billy D. Williams.

He is accused shooting and killing Seattle resident James Little in White Center on May 7, 2017.

King County Sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi West said Little was attending a birthday party at a bar in the 9800 block of 16th Avenue SW in White Center on May 7 when a group of women got into a fight, which spilled outside. The women eventually separated and Little approached a group of people across the street when Williams, who was in the group, pulled a gun and shot Little in the head, killing him, West said.

Detectives have not released a motive for the shooting but said Williams has ties to Albany, Ore., and Seattle.

“Normally, when someone is on the run, it doesn’t stop with the crime they just committed. Normally, they don’t have a job, they may not have employment so they have to provide for themselves so they’re committing other crimes while they’re on the run, so getting these guys off the street, it’s imperative that we continue to keep the community safe,” said Acting U.S. Marshal Jacob Green. “He has to go to court. He has to face justice and that’s why he is on our top ten list.”

Billy D. Williams is 31 years old, 5’8″, with a medium build.

If anyone has information regarding the whereabouts of Williams, the sheriff’s office asks that you call 911 or you can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 by calling Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
