LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Police are searching for a man wanted in connection with a fatal shooting in Lafayette Saturday.

Police were called to 1600 block of Alabama street around 11:50 p.m. for a reported shooting. When they arrived they found 34-year-old Kenneth Williams with a gunshot wound. Kenneth was taken to IU Health Arnett where he was pronounced dead.

Police are looking for 32-year-old William Sutherland in connection to the murder.

William is believed to be armed and dangerous and should not be approached if spotted.

Police said there were multiple adults and children inside the home at the time of the shooting.

Sarah Cox and Peter Prah both live nearby. They said the recent crime is concerning.


"It doesn't matter where you're at it's not safe anymore you gotta watch out for your own back and your family," said Cox.

"Unfortunately, I'm kind of use to violent crime in the area. I've lived here for over two years now and it's just kind of a weekly thing," said Prah.

Anyone with more information is asked to call 765-807-1200 or the anonymous WeTip hotline at 800-78-CRIME.
