The shooting happened about 4 a.m. Saturday in a parking lot in the 5300 block of State Road 7 in Tamarac.

An argument ensued and several shots were fired by an unknown man. Deputies said Williams was struck by two projectiles.

Williams ran to a Dodge Charger and attempted to drive away, but crashed into a parked box truck, deputies said. He then got out of the Dodge Charger and ran east across State Road 7 to Players Sports Bar, where he was found by deputies.
