A Murder Still Goes Unsolved After Three Years

OMAHA (KPTM)- Three years ago an Omaha teen was shot and killed in broad daylight.  It happened near a busy bus stop.  But three years later nobody is talking.

"There's somebody walking around out there that killed, took somebody's life.  My son was only 15 years old.  It'll never be the same please," said Yvonne Williams, as she wept for her murdered son.

In February 2010, 15-year-old Everett Williams was shot and killed while waiting on his bus home near 48th Avenue and Bedford.

"My last vision of him was out my rear view window.  In my car, driving off," said Everett Williams, the teen's father.

Today his family is still left without answers.

"When I was coming up, you can use these (fists) and just walk away.  Even if you lost the fight, you can walk away—you'll live from it.  These days it seems like young people can't do that," said Everett.

"I understand, some people are scared because with all this gang violence, they scared if they talk they will get threatened.  And somebody will come after them," said Yvonne.

Williams was shot at his bus stop at about 3pm just after school let out from Benson High School.  He was a freshman on the football team.  His parents said they know people saw the shooting, especially at that time of day.

"Somebody was with him.  One of his friends was with him when it happened so we know he seen it.  And he knows.  And that's a friend we haven't seen since—I don't even know who he is," said Yvonne.

"A lot of people knew what was going on, it was something that he knew, I really feel that," said Everett.

Williams said his son was a lot quieter than usual that day.  He believes pressure from street gangs is keeping everyone quiet.

"It seems like everybody is in survival mode out here.  We all trying to survive, he have to get back to the basics of what these kids really need," he said.
