Police have charged a suspect in the drive-by shooting death of Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams, who was gunned down on New Year’s Day 2007.      

       Willie D. Clark, 25, was indicted Wednesday on 39 counts, including first degree murder, attempted murder, assault, crimes of violence and a weapons violation, Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey told the Associated Press.      

       Clark is in federal custody in a separate case. He was long considered a “person of interest” in Williams’ slaying but is the first suspect to be indicted.

 

       Williams a former Oklahoma State standout, was shot and killed while riding in a rented limousine early on Jan. 1, 2007, after leaving the Safari Club, a Denver nightspot. He was 24.       

       The indictment said Williams and Clark were at the club with separate groups of friends when an altercation flared between the two groups. Quoting witnesses, it said Clark got into an SUV, followed the rented limo carrying Williams and opened fire.      

       At least 15 shots were fired into the limo. Williams was shot in the neck, and two other passengers, Nicole Reindl and Brandon Flowers, were wounded, the indictment said.
