Arrest made in fatal road rage shooting | News
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has made an arrest in the fatal road rage shooting that happened Wednesday night in the 4300 block of Dunn Avenue.
Isreal Kevin Williams, 41, was arrested and charged Thursday evening with murder and shooting deadly missiles into an occupied vehicle. Tom Schadowsky, 41, was found dead in a pickup truck pulling a tractor-trailer of a single gunshot wound.
According to a JSO report, witnesses saw a man driving an orange Chevy Avalanche with Florida A&M tags get into an altercation with Schadowsky in the parking lot of the Gate gas station at 4234 Dunn Avenue. The man in the Avalanche was then seen backing into a spot, waiting for Schadowsky to leave.
After Schadowsky left in his truck, the Avalanche was seen by witnesses to immediately follow him, the report said. The time between the Avalanche following Schadowsky and hearing a single gunshot was described witnesses as seconds.
Police made contact with Williams on Thursday and he showed them his orange Avalanche. He admitted to police that he argued with Schadowsky, waited for him to leave the Gate parking lot, and followed him on to Dunn Avenue.
Williams also told police that he reported his FAMU tags stolen and then dumped the tags and "other items" in a Dumpster in Nassau County, the report said.
Witnesses said there were no other vehicles in the vicinity when Schadowsky pulled onto Dunn Avenue, but Williams told police that Schadowsky cut off a dark colored sedan.
As of Friday afternoon, Williams was still listed as being held in the Duval County Jail and not eligible for bond.
