Man from Albany who allegedly gave teen gun in fatal shooting due in court Tuesday
An Albany man accused of giving a gun to a 14-year-old who killed himself will be in court on Tuesday afternoon.
Ellazar Williams is facing charges of criminal sale of a firearm to a minor, criminal possession of a firearm and criminal possession of stolen property.
The teen was found dead last month from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Police have not said if the incident was a suicide or accidental.
Wiliams is currently using three Albany police detectives in federal court on the grounds they used excessive force. He was paralyzed after being shot by police.
Williams was supposed to be in court Monday morning, but the court clerk said the hearing has been moved to Tuesday at 1:30 p.m.
