Anthony Nieves, 22, of Philadelphia, has been charged with murder, aggravated assault, simple assault, and other related charges, after police arrested him for the murder of former Maine running back Zaire Williams.
According to CBS Philadelphia, a confrontation at the Johnny Walker Bar on 10th and Race Streets. Police say the confrontation was broken up but the people involved went to the 1800 block of West Montgomery Avenue, just off Temple’s campus, where a fistfight broke out.
Williams, 25, reportedly won the fight but Nieves then allegedly shot Williams in the head. Williams was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
I cannot stand this news, Zaire Williams was such a good kid. Anthony Nieves will have to live with his actions for the rest of his life. That sucks because he too is very young. No one wins in this situation, too bad it could not have just ended as a fist fight.
