A 17-year-old will face charges of attempted murder and robbery as an adult following a grand jury indictment for the December murder of Terrence Lajuan Johnson.

Kantad Alexander Williams has been in custody since March when Metro detectives identified him as the gunman who allegedly shot Johnson, 34, on Charles E. Davis Boulevard Dec. 23.

Police said Williams shot Johnson during an argument at the J.C. Napier public housing development after allegedly robbing a 33-year-old earlier that same day and shooting a 29-year-old man in the legs during a robbery on Dec. 22.

Last week, a Davidson County grand jury indicted Williams on charges of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, especially aggravated attempted robbery and felon in possession of a weapon.

Was this 'him' or was it 'his Environment', doin the talkin? What if we didn't have no guns for him to shoot with, and if crack did not cost money; causing him steal, huh?
