A beloved peewee football coach walking to his car after practice was gunned down execution-style in front of his horrified team, according to reports Friday. Dave Williams told a group of children to run when he saw men with guns walking towards him at Mills Pond Park in Fort Lauderdale Thursday night,WPLG-TV reported. Fort Lauderdale police said the 43-year-old man died of multiple gunshot wounds. His killers fled.
Williams had just treated his team of 30 kids to cookies and Gatorade after the practice, the Sun-Sentinel reported. “I just heard the shots, ran in that direction and found one of my coaches on the ground, fighting for his life,” Jamaal Gaines, president of the Fort Lauderdale Hurricanes youth football club, told the paper.
One can only wonder if Mr. Williams was leading a double life, meaning he seemed to have known what was coming his way, when telling the children to run, when seeing men approaching. Those children do not have enough hardship in their little lives, that even in a supposed safe supervised environment something like this happens. I hope these cold blooded killers are caught and justice served out properly. Time will tell, there is more than one victim here. What do you think?
