Arrest made in Wednesday night shooting

By Marisela Burgos - bio | email

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville Metro Police detectives arrested a teenager and charged with him the murder of a 20-year-old shot and killed on Dixie Highway.

Metro Police say 20-year-old Dezmond Williams was in an altercation near the intersection of Dixie Highway and Gaulbert Avenue Wednesday night, which ended with a gunshot wound to the chest. Williams died at the scene. 18-year-old Bryce Goggins was arrested Friday afternoon and charged with murder.

Even before finding out there was an arrest in his brother's case, Trey Breaux said it did not make a difference. "That's not going to bring my brother back. Honestly, I don't care if he got locked up for the rest of his life or he was still on the streets because regardless {it} is not going to bring my brother back," Trey Breaux said.

"All this arguing is not worth it for real. Its too many people dying out here. Just live your life. Just get you a job. Go to school or whatever," Breaux said.

Breaux said his brother was released from jail earlier this month. In the past, Williams pleaded guilty to robbery 2nd, sentenced to possession of Marijuana, and found guilty of theft and drug charges. Breaux said his brother was turning his life around.

"He wasn't perfect. I'm not going to lie to you. He still was in the streets, but that's still my brother. He was working his way to take care of his daughter," Breaux said.

Williams leaves behind a 2-year-old daughter. Breaux said he will help take care of his niece. "Look at her. She's cute. Look just like her daddy. He's a funny looking guy. She look just like him with them big eyes and everything," Breaux said.

On Friday, Williams family revisited the place he was shot and killed. The family placed pictures, stuffed animals, and other items in his honor. Traneshia Breaux said she feels numb as she tries to make sense of her brother's death.

"I want my brother back, but can't get him back," Traneshia Breaux said.
