His surrender comes three days after the fatal shooting of Khajon Spikes in the parking lot of the Marathon BP station in Williston.

Deputies issued a warrant for the 25-year-old one day after the shooting.

According to officials, Williams and Spikes were arguing at the gas station, when Williams pulled out a gun and shot Spikes in the chest. Spikes died at the scene.

Deputies have also arrested Sydney Frasier Jr.,28, as an accomplice.

This is the fifth time Williams has been booked into the Levy County Detention Facility. He has additional arrests in Marion County.

In a press release, LCSO is asking the public for help in the investigation.

“Multiple individuals were captured on store surveillance video at this scene when the shooting occurred. The LCSO is asking each of these people to come forward,” the release read.

Forget the code of the streets and be part of the change,” Gussie Boatwright of Williston, Spikes’ grandmother, posted this comment on her personal Facebook page. “Khajon’s departure is the beginning of a new community. Get on board or move to another county where your behavior is more tolerated. #JusticeforKhajon”
