Hunt for Georgia jail inmate escapees leads to violent confrontation with kidnapped murder suspect: Police

The massive manhunt for four Georgia inmate escapees led armed law enforcement teams to the doorstep of a murder suspect, who vanished after he appeared to be kidnapped seven months ago.

U.S. Marshals were “met by gunfire” through a closed apartment door, and backed up by SWAT teams who blasted through the entrance, the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office said Monday evening.

They found a man – later identified as Christian Williams, 23 – “down from a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” the sheriff’s office said. 

This is the first time anyone has seen Williams since he was reportedly abducted on March 6 just hours before he was due in court for 2021 murder charges.

Anyone with information on the possible location(s) of these escapees should call the FBI’s tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324), the USMS at 1-877-WANTED2, or the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500. Tips may also be submitted online at tips.fbi.gov or USMS Tips App.
