Okada said the SWAT team entered the apartment at about 4:45 p.m. through the front door, which was barricaded with furniture, and found Williams standing with two knives held to his throat. He was subdued and suffered self-inflicted, non-life-threatening wounds in the process, officers said. Williams was taken to Salem Hospital. Amanda Attleberger, who lives below Williams, said she wasn't surprised to see police surround her neighbor's apartment.
"He doesn't seem like a mean guy or anything like that, just not very considerate," she said. "He likes to play music really loud in the middle of the night. He likes to, we assume, consume alcohol." Amy Skiftun lives nearby and said watching the police activity was stressful. "Especially when no one is telling you what's going on and you see big vehicles," she said. Okada said the investigation into Williams centered around stolen credit cards and a fake Oregon identification card. When Williams is released from the hospital, he's expected to be booked into jail on charges of identity theft and forgery. Further charges are pending, police said.
