Micah Lee Williams, a 28 year-old Belize City resident, died on Tuesday January 21 after  fighting for his life at the KHMH for almost 12 hours. He was shot in the head on Tuesday, January 21. His shooters came to his house pretending to have interest in buying car rims and that’s how they got him to let his guard down.

 Williams had just dropped his girlfriend off, and when he returned to his house on Raccoon Street just before 9 o’clock, he began washing his car. 2 men rode up and asked him about the rims he was selling, and he told them that they were already sold to someone else. When he was about to look away and head inside, one of the men pulled out a firearm and shot him in the head, near the temple area.

Those men rode off and escaped. With the help of bystanders, Williams, was quickly rushed to the KHMH, where the doctors worked feverishly to keep him alive. The bullet that struck him in the head, according to the doctors, was lodged in his brain, and they had to conduct complicated surgeries to try to remove it.

 Williams is well-known to police; he was once shot by them, and in March 2010, the Gang Suppression Unit tried to connect him to 19 pounds of weed they found in a car that he was allegedly travelling in along with his brother, Denroy Williams and their friend, Shawn Whitaker.

Micah Lee Williams beat that case when it was heard in the Magistrate’s Court when his attorney proved that the police didn’t positively identify him and Whitaker as 2 of the 3 men who were supposedly in the car. The GSU was able to secure a conviction against his brother, Denroy Williams, for that weed, which landed him a 3 year sentence in jail.

And while Williams is known to police, and he has his brother Denroy who is in jail, he also has a brother who is well-known for positive developments in society. He is the older brother Max “Pain” Williams, the well-known boxer out of the Leopold Smart Boxing Gym, who has been making a name for himself as a promising young athlete.
