Summary: Investigator Sherry Lyons-Williams was shot and killed while she and and another narcotics investigator attempted to make an arrest at approximately 1500 hours.

As the officers were securing the stairway to the basement, the suspect opened fire with a .45 caliber handgun striking Investigator Lyons-Williams in the chest and her partner in the leg and face. The rounds which struck Officer Lyons-Williams bypassed her vest. Her wounded partner was able to return fire and kill the suspect. Both officers were transported to a local hospital where Investigator Lyons-Williams was pronounced dead.
