Officer Walter Williams was patrolling his area at approximately 4:00 am when he noticed two suspicious males.
He was about to question the males when one of them checked Officer Williams' chest to see if he was wearing his vest, which he was. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and shot Officer Williams in the head, leaving him alone next to the police car to die. A passerby noticed Officer Williams and used the police radio to call for help. The suspect was found shortly after that morning and has since been awaiting his death sentence.
Officer Williams had served with the Waterbury Police Department for eight years. He was survived by his wife and three sons.
