Residents then reportedly found a man resembling the CCTV footage at a public housing complex and held him down until police arrived and made an arrest. Video posted to Twitter by Olya Scootercaster showed the chaotic moment as authorities loaded the man onto a stretcher, with local residents outside the building screaming and filming the incident.

As the man was seen being carried outside, police were seen struggling to hold back some bystanders in the large crowd who tried to punch the man on the stretcher.

As the man is placed into the back of an emergency vehicle, a woman can be heard screaming from behind the camera: “Kill him, please kill him.”

Williams was a Kips Bay neighborhood resident, and her aunt, Nisha Ramirez, described her as “kind” and a “lovely person,” according to PIX11 News.

“Honestly, I don't know who would do something to her,” Ramirez told the outlet. “She's a kind person. She's a good person and she grew up here. I don't know why someone would be motivated to do something to her.”

Following an autopsy, the coroner ruled Williams' cause of death a homicide, but the relationship of the man in the wheelchair to the victim is unclear as the investigation is ongoing.
