Police have identified a suspect in the fatal shooting of Sutton Tennyson, Angela Simmons’ former fiancé and the father of her 2-year-old son of the same name.
A lawyer for Michael Williams told TMZ that the 44-year-old man has turned himself into the Atlanta Police Department. He’s since been charged with murder.

Williams is believed to be the man who fled Tennyson’s home last weekend after an intense argument in the driveway led to several rounds of gunfire. Witnesses say they saw a man speed off in a car after hearing shots ring out.
Tennyson was found dead in the garage of the house by police.
According to TMZ, Williams has been charged with murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony.
Still, Williams’ lawyer has denied the allegations that he shot and killed Tennyson.
Simmons and her family expressed their grief over the tragedy on social media.
“Thank you for leaving behind my greatest gift,” she wrote in part in a caption on Instagram. “I’m hurting. I’m numb.”
