Quentric Williams, 32, pleaded not guilty Oct. 8 to charges that he allegedly murdered a man at the Starlight Six Drive-In off Moreland Avenue earlier this year.
Williams’ charges include one count of malice murder, two counts of felony murder, one count of aggravated assault, two counts of aggravated assault of a police officer and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
Williams allegedly shot moviegoer Mitt Lenix, 28, who was having car trouble and asked Williams for help May 15. It was later reported that Lenix interrupted Williams while he was having sex with his girlfriend and that is why he was shot.
Williams then allegedly led police on a high-speed chase on I-285 into Gwinnett County.
During the time that police chased him, Williams also allegedly tried to steer his truck into several of the police cars chasing him, which is why he faces two counts of aggravated assault of a police officer.
The parents of Lenix, who was known as a martial arts expert, began a fund in his honor to continue his legacy. Both of Lenix’s parents are also martial arts experts and own the Universal Martial Arts studio in Stockbridge, where their son also taught.
Originally, the fund was set up to help Lenix’s family with the expenses associated with their son’s death but has now been expanded into a fund to offer scholarships to those who are less fortunate or affected by similar circumstances.
