Police investigate murder at Tampa apartment complex

Tampa, Florida -- With two young children nearby, Tampa police say a man pulled out a gun and shot 28-year-old James Williams to death.

It happened at the Park Terrace Apartments near 40th Street and Hillsborough Avenue at around 6 a.m. Wednesday.

A police spokeswoman said Williams knew the man who's suspected of killing him; they had some kind of disagreement, and then the man shot Williams.

That suspect is in custody, so the police say the public's not in danger.

Williams was staying in the apartment where it happened with a woman and her two children, who are four and six years old.

Police say they're still working to figure out for certain whether the kids were in the apartment when the murder happened or if their mother had taken them outside when the commotion first started.
