Matt Williams is an anchor for 9News This Morning and Early Edition. He was born in Tulsa, OK, grew up all over the country, and moved to Baton Rouge in July 2003.
"From photographer and reporter to anchor and monkey in a suit, I've worn a few hates here," he said. "I like to think I've grown a little bit each year. I keep learning every day. Currently I'm one of the co-anchors on 9News This Morning. So I'll see you dark & early!"
Every spare moment he has, Matt tries to spend with his family.
The aftermath of a quadruple shooting is hard to mistake for much else. There were plenty of lights and crime tape all around. That was the case back on April 27, 2016 in the 4300 block of Kerrit Dr. in Baton Rouge.
Was it a robbery? Did somebody stake out his routine? Is there more than one person involved? So many questions. But until we start talking, it doesn't matter how many bullet casings they find, they may not find the killer.
Just 18-years-old with the rest of his life ahead of him. It wasn't supposed to end before he turned 19 on the streets of his own neighborhood. A neighborhood, and an environment, his mother is looking to get out of.
