Jury Finds Man Guilty of 2017 Kitchen House Way Killing
A Germantown man has been found guilty of murder for his involvement in a quadruple shooting at a Germantown townhouse which left one man dead and three others suffering from gunshot wounds on April 29, 2017. Police also believe that he is responsible for the killing of another man in Prince Georges County while he was on the run after the first shooting.
Montgomery County State’s Attorney John J. McCarthy, announced today that a jury found Furl John Williams, 26, of Fort Washington, guilty on multiple counts including Felony Murder which carries a maximum penalty of life in prison without parole.
Williams, who at one point, was a resident of the 18800 block of McFarlin Drive in Germantown, was found guilty of Felony Murder for the homicide of 19-year-old Amaru Amir Santos Johnson and the shooting of three other people in a townhouse at 12839 Kitchen House Way.
Williams is the second suspect to either be found guilty or plead guilty to crimes connected with this incident. In December, 25-year-old Clarksburg resident, Eric Anthony Lee pleaded guilty to two counts of Armed Robbery and four counts of First Degree Assault. He remains in the Montgomery County Correctional Center awaiting sentencing.
“Shooting multiple people in a home invasion simply will not be tolerated,” said Ramon V. Korionoff, spokesman for the State’s Attorney’s Office. “Violet criminals will be apprehended, prosecuted and do jail time.”
On Saturday, April 29 in 2017 at approximately 12:55 am, the Emergency Communications Center received multiple calls for a shooting that had just occurred inside of the residence. Officers from the 5th District along with Fire and Rescue personnel responded and located two adult male victims and two adult female victims at the home suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. The three remaining victims were transported to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
According to court documents, Williams and Lee were the Kitchen House Way neighborhood at about midnight, an hour before the shooting. At about that time two female victims were accosted by Lee and Williams, as they left their vehicle and were walking toward the residence.
