Authorities have released the name of a man fatally shot in Saturday’s predawn hours.

Birmingham police Saturday night identified the victim as Demetrious Restee Williams. He was 36 and lived in Fairfield.

Just before 3 a.m., West Precinct officers responded to a Shot Spotter alert of gunfire at Avenue W and 18th Street in Ensley. While they were en route, the call was updated to report a man lying in the roadway.

Sgt. LaQuitta Wade said when police arrived, they found Williams wounded and unresponsive. Birmingham Fire and Rescue Service pronounced him dead on the scene.

Wade said Shot Spotter registered about nine rounds.

“Details are limited,” Wade said.

Williams was the first of three men killed in shootings in Birmingham on Saturday.

At 3:33 p.m., a 24-year-old man was fatally shot while in a vehicle outside an Ensley store.

Less than 30 minutes later, another man was injured in a shooting in the 2600 block of Avenue C. He was pronounced dead at UAB Hospital.

No arrests have been made in any of the slayings.

Anyone with information is asked to call homicide detectives at 205-254-1764 or Crime Stoppers at 205-254-7777.
