WSFA 12 News Exclusive: Suspect's Brother Speaks

Jaboric Williams is in shock.

On Saturday night, police officers attempted to pull over his car, a vehicle Williams lent to his brother, Quandell Williams, 20. 

"He was stopped because he has over $1,100 worth of traffic tickets," Jaboric Williams said.

A routine stop on Montgomery's Western Boulevard quickly turned for the worst.  Police say Williams drove off, ending up on Marlyn street in the Smiley Court community.

In a press release issued by the Montgomery Police Department, officers say they were finally able to stop the vehicle, but Williams attempted to use his car as a deadly weapon, forcing police to open fire.

Jaboric tells us his brother kept driving, even after being shot--until he and a friend came to his aide.

"Three of [officers] ran and came up pulling guns, telling us to drop him," Williams explained.

Quandell Williams is in critical but stable condition at a Montgomery hospital, suffering from what his brother says are four gunshot wounds.

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation has taken over the case.  This is routine when an officer fires his weapon at a suspect.
