Latif Williams, on Wednesday night, turned himself in to the Philadelphia Police Department’s Homicide Unit following the killing of 21-year-old Samuel Collington on Sunday. Officers that day responded to a 911 call for a person with a gun in the city’s north side and found Collington with gunshot wounds to his chest and back. He later was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
“Latif was fully cooperative with police upon learning of his arrest warrant, and he turned himself in voluntarily this evening,” Williams’ attorneys, Patrick Link and Marni Jo Snyder, told Fox29 Philadelphia. “We are in the process of investigating the facts of this case and we expect his presumption of innocence to be maintained throughout the judicial proceedings.”
