NEW: Fight over dirty garage led to Sunday shooting in Greenacres, PBSO says


Greenacres man is facing three charges of attempted murder after a Sunday evening shooting that started as an argument over a dirty garage, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.

Raymond Ricardo Williams, 51, told deputies that “the devil was inside him” when he shot his ex-wife and the mother of his grandchild and tried to shoot his son at their shared home on Wedgewood Circle in Greenacres

According to the arrest report, the argument started when Williams’ son, 26-year-old Ramone Williams, told him to clean the garage and he refused. 

As the two argued, Raymond’s ex-wife, Natalie Williams, and the mother of Ramone’s child, Danique Wilson, joined the men in the garage, the report said. 

Wilson and Natalie Williams told deputies that as the argument escalated, Raymond Williams pulled out a semi-automatic pistol and began shooting. 

According to the report, Natalie Williams was shot in the hand and Wilson was hit in the arm. 

Raymond Williams then turned his gun on his son and tried to shoot him as he ran from the house, a witness told deputies. 

According to the women who were shot, Raymond Williams then walked back into the garage, reloaded his pistol and shot Wilson one more time in the back. 

The women were flown to St. Mary’s Medical Center where they are expected to survive, a sheriff’s office spokeswoman said. Ramone Williams was not hit, the report said. 

Raymond Williams, who left the scene after the shooting, was caught by authorities as he left the neighborhood, off Jog Road south of 10th Avenue North, the report said. He is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail, where Judge Ted Booras declined to set bail for him Monday.
