LOUISVILLE Ky. (AP) — A Louisville man who fired a stray bullet that killed a 7-year-old boy in 2017 has pleaded guilty to federal gun charges. Twenty-five-year-old Wyatt Lamar Williams was charged in October with three counts of being an unlawful user of a controlled substance in possession of a firearm. Investigators say Williams fired several shots while playing dice in May 2017. One of those bullets went into 7-year-old Dequante Hobbs Jr.’s home and he died. Williams was also found guilty on state charges of manslaughter.
