JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Hundreds with heavy hearts filled a Southside church wondering how a traffic stop in Arlington could lead to Davinian Williams death.
"It's a sad day and amazing that only in America do you have to be scared of the police," said his cousin, Maurice Williams.
Police say Williams drove through several stop signs when Officer Jeff Edwards pulled him over. At some point the officer felt threatened and fired his gun seven times. Six of those bullets hit Williams.
"Something has to be done about this. Something has got to be done about all of these police shootings," said Williams.
Investigators later found more than 17 grams of powder and crack cocaine in Williams' socks, but he didn't have a gun.
"I don't care what they say. He was unarmed and shot in the back," said Robinson.
"His brother is a member at our church, and we love him," said Yolanda Hooper with the Titus Harvest Dome Spectrum.
Saturday night family and friends are morning the loss of the man they playfully knew as "Dae Dae." "The Pastor has been working with the family and the children," said Hooper.
"Everyone that knew him, knows that he was a nice guy and would help anyone. A good dude," said Robinson.
Officer Jeff Edwards is a three year veteran with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and he was put on administrative leave.
Davinian Williams did have a criminal history that included resisting arrest, selling drugs, and driving with a suspended license. This shooting is still under investigation.
