Brian Williams was breaking up with Hamilton and conspired with three others to stage her abduction and subsequent shooting, Davenport Assistant Police Chief Don Schaeffer said.
They lived together at 6037 Hillandale Road. Hamilton initially told police that she and Brian Williams had been duct-taped and abducted by gunpoint from their home and taken to an undisclosed location. She also said the suspects demanded money, shot her in the leg and left her in a ditch while they left with Williams.
A follow-up investigation showed that Williams wasn’t a victim, police said.
The investigation also revealed that within an hour of the shooting, Williams and the co-conspirators drove to 126 W. 14th St., Davenport, where Hamilton’s new boyfriend lived, and poured gasoline around the residence and set it on fire, police said.
Anyone who sees Brian Williams is asked to call 911 immediately, Davenport police say.
