Police ID Armed Robber Shot Dead By Officers


An armed robber fatally shot by officers on Thursday morning is now identified as Anthony Joe Williams.  

 

Police say Williams robbed an Exxon at South Post Oak and Willowbend at about 8:30 a.m.  He reportedly fired shots at a store clerk who took a picture of his license plate, and also shot at a customer who pulled in to buy gas right after the robbery.  

 

Williams was involved in a traffic accident on the 610 West Loop in Bellaire a short while later.  When police responded, he took off on foot, and tried to carjack several drivers before an officer shot him.
