Homicide victim DeAndre Williams’ stolen 2002 burgundy Cadillac Escalade was recovered on Eight Mile Road at Dyson Court at about 11:20 a.m.
ALBANY — A 25-year-old man was fatally shot while on the parking lot of the Sandtrap Club & Lounge at 3:05 a.m. Sunday, stated an Albany Police Department report.
“The victim had been shot twice, chest and stomach, while in the parking lot,” said Phyllis Banks, police spokeswoman.
An initial investigation led Banks to say that the victim, DeAndre Williams, was approached by the suspect or suspects.
“An argument ensued, several shots were fired and the victim was struck twice,” Banks said. “The suspect then fled the scene in the victim’s 2002 burgundy Cadillac Escalade with 26-inch chrome rims.”
A police Nixle alert sent to registered residents’ phones with a photo and description of the stolen Escalade attracted a resident. The resident called dispatch with the SUV’s location at Eight Mile Road and Dyson Court.
