GA followup : Woman found not guilty in 2013 Shooting
Williams and her attorney maintained all along, however, that Brooks was the one who triggered the shooting.
Smith told The AJC on Monday that his client had indeed gone to the restaurant on Bouldercrest Road to confront a woman who had been “talking smack about her,” but the attorney said it was Williams who was attempting to leave the scene when Brooks pulled out a handgun. Williams had her own gun — the same one she would later take to Smith’s office — and shot first, Smith said.
“It was self-defense,” Smith said. “My client saw a gun.”
