KC NoVA enforcement nets murder and several other charges

For Immediate Release

March 30, 2017

On Nov. 15, 2016, 22-year-old Antonio Williams Jr. was fatally shot at a Phillips 66 station at Bannister Road and Drury Avenue. Another man was injured by gunfire in the same incident.

The Williams' homicide prompted a group enforcement by the Kansas City No Violence Alliance (KC NoVA) that has now resulted in not only the arrest and prosecution of the alleged shooter but also a significant number of other enforcement actions against 21 associates of the shooter. KCPD's Violent Crime Enforcement squads concluded this group enforcement against the so-called "Deion" group or gang this week.

Earlier this month, prosecutors charged William M. Enloe, 20,  with Murder 2nd Degree, assault and two counts of Armed Criminal Action. He is being held in Jackson County on a $100,000 cash bond.

"We promised this group before Antonio Williams' murder that we would enforce on them and all of their associates if any of them were involved in a homicide," said Major Mike Wood, KC NoVA's project manager. "The results of those enforcement today should clearly show that we mean exactly what we say."

During the 6 month enforcement action on the "Deion" group, 18 handguns have been recovered from known associates of Enloe and the Deion Gang. These recovered firearms included 5 assault-style high capacity handguns and nearly 400 rounds of ammunition. Nearly 110 city, state and federal arrests were made and nine state felony charges against members of the Deion group have been filed (with several other cases still to be submitted to prosecutors).  Officers also recovered 38.6 grams of crack cocaine, .3 grams of cocaine base, 67.7 grams of marijuana and seized over $2,000 in US currency.
