Williams runs by the child and disappears around a corner of the backyard. Two adults grab the child and move out of view before the deputy runs into the backyard and points his gun, fatally shooting the suspect.

Authorities say deputies were on patrol when they saw a large group of people, including one who was holding a gun, on Friday night. According to detectives, Williams pointed a gun at the pursuing deputy before he was shot.

A large crowd of people, including loved ones, gathered near the area of 120th Street and South Willowbrook Avenue on Saturday night, calling for justice for Williams.

On Saturday, Black Lives Matter-LA tweeted about the incident.

The incident remains under investigation.
