District Attorney Jan Scully announced today that Joseph Raheem Williams was convicted by jury of voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of Alexander Hunter. Williams was also found guilty of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

On February 10, 2008, Alexander Hunter was celebrating his 21st birthday with family and friends at the Double Tree Hotel in Sacramento. At around 3:00 a.m., Hunter left the hotel and walked through the parking lot when a vehicle came close to hitting a family member.

Hunter and his brother exchanged words with the driver of the car and Williams, a passenger. The driver and Williams got out of the car and walked towards a hotel entrance. Hunter followed them through the parking lot demanding a fight. When Hunter grabbed Williams’ shoulder, Williams turned around and shot Hunter one time in the chest.

Williams will be sentenced on July 15, 2011 in Department 26 by the Honorable Judge Michael Savage
