| July 29, 2015


CRESTVIEW — Four men have been arrested in connection to the killing of a Florida teenager.

The body of Mark Anthony Williams Jr., 18 of Crestview, was found January 21 along a highway near Niceville. The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office said he had been shot at least seven times with three guns.

Now four have been arrested related to the death.

Authorities reported that three men have been arrested Friday in Fort Walton Beach on charges of first-degree premeditated murder and racketeering.

A fourth man was arrested Sunday on racketeering charges, according published reports.

Investigators said the suspects are members of a “gang and marijuana distribution operation,” and they believed Williams had been giving information to a rival gang.
