HAMMOND, La. (AP) - Authorities are searching for a man wanted in connection with the fatal shooting of his ex-wife.

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office said Monday that they’re looking for 53-year-old Jerry Williams Jr., who’s wanted for second-degree murder in 50-year-old Linda Williams’ death.

Deputies found Linda Williams shot dead Sunday morning in front of her Hammond home after receiving a call about the gunfire.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Dawn Panepinto said in a news release that the victim had been shot once in the head.

Panepinto says witnesses told police that after hearing shots, they saw the victim’s ex-husband leaving his ex-wife’s home in a red Mustang.

Detectives have since recovered the car.

Anyone with information about Jerry Williams Jr.’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 554-5245.
