Tatioun Williams: Baby-faced criminal or innocent teen?


15-year-old Tatioun Christopher Williams was shot to death after he allegedly aimed a gun at two Chicago police sergeants investigating a South Side robbery.

The robbery occurred Wednesday, May 25, 2011, around 8 p.m. on the 7000 block of South Cregier Avenue in South Shore.

Williams and a second suspect, purportedly robbed a man at gunpoint.

When police caught up with the offenders and ordered them to stop, one of the suspects aimed a weapon at the officers, said authorities.

Williams was shot in the back and later pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

A Chicago News Report investigation uncovered a link between Williams and 19-year-old murder victim, Markell Stribling.

On May 20, 2011, Stribling was shot several times in the chest on the 11700 block of South La Salle Street. Click here to read the entire story.

Although it isn't clear if Williams and Stribling knew one another, they definitely knew some of the same people. And, Williams, like Stribling, possibly had ties to a Chicago street gang. In fact, some of Williams' Facebook friends referred to him as "lil folks", a nickname often used for members of the Disciples.

In response to William's death, some of the dead teen's online associates seem to be plotting revenge and claiming to be police killers.

A male using the moniker Liltwenty Allaboutthembandz, posted messages on Facebook referring to himself as a C.P.D.K., Chicago Police Department Killer:


Williams' mother, Lois Pickett, tearfully told the media that her son, who had a history of arrests, would never carry a gun. That may or may not be true, but Williams was certainly running with the wrong crowd and now... he's dead.
