GLENDALE, Ariz. – A 28-year-old man faces a second-degree murder charge following a deadly shooting in Glendale around 2 a.m. Wednesday.

Dylan Labe Williams, of Phoenix, also faces a charge of misconduct involving weapons.

Williams is accused of shooting Glendale resident George Palmer, 29, after an argument at an apartment complex near Northern and 59th avenues.

Glendale police Sgt. Jay O'Neill said the two men had seen each other in the complex on previous occasions but were not acquaintances.

Williams and Palmer reportedly had been involved in an argument in a common area earlier in the night. Later, the two met and again began to argue, which police said escalated into a physical confrontation and Palmer was shot several times in the torso.

Palmer was transported to a local hospital where he later died.

Witnesses told police that Williams had initially fled in a pickup truck but had returned to the area. He was contacted by officers and detained inside of the vehicle, which was parked in a separate apartment complex in the area.

Glendale Police Violent Crimes detectives arrested Williams and he was booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail.

According to court documents, Williams was on probation for aggravated assault and is a convicted felon.
