The suspects had followed the victim from Kentucky on Saturday night.

He, along with friends and relatives, drove to the Elizabeth, Ind.  casino. Once there, at approximately 12:50 a.m. Sunday, they went into the gaming property.

After about three hours, the victim, LilDon Williams, 32, of Louisville, Ky., and his family and friends left the casino. His family members and friends went to their cars and drove away.

Williams apparently was walking to his vehicle, when he saw the armed duo and tried to run away.

Suspects Had Rifles

But Williams was cornered in the garage by the two men who were holding rifles. He was repeatedly shot by the suspects.

Williams fell down on the pavement and passed away on the garage’s upper deck.

Both the suspects, wearing masks and gloves, then fled from the crime scene.

One of the suspects fled in Williams’ 2013 Dodge Charger. It is silver and black, and was equipped with a black louver on a rear window.

As of this weekend, police had not yet released a description of the two suspects.

Williams had been tailed by the suspects for about 14 miles from a Saturday night concert which took place in Louisville, according to Harrison County Sheriff Nick Smith.

Once they arrived at the casino lot, the two assailants parked their dark car and waited for Williams.

Based on evidence and surveillance video reviewed by officers, Williams was “targeted, hunted down and executed” by the suspects, Smith revealed.

There were witnesses at the crime scene who saw some of the incident. None were friends or relatives of Williams’.

Williams will undergo an autopsy to confirm the cause and manner of death. He was killed by multiple gunshots.

He was a hip-hop performer and also had a full-time job, according to Kentucky TV station WDRB. Williams was one of several performers at the Louisville concert held at an unspecified venue.

Police did not detail a motive for the deadly shooting.

It appeared the shooting was an isolated event and there is no continuing threat to the public, according to Kentucky TV station WAVE.

Sunday’s fatal shooting is the casino’s first homicide since it opened in 1998, Smith said.

Family Is Grieving

Williams is survived by his wife and a six-year-old daughter, according to Kentucky TV station WLKY. Williams’ relatives broke the tragic news to his young daughter.

Authorities said they want to give the family “closure” and hope to make arrests in the case.

Relatives described Williams as a “good man” who would give others the shirt off his back. He lived “a very clean life,” relatives added.

He did not deserve this,” Williams’ wife said at a recent press conference. “His daughter … [doesn’t] deserve this… He did not deserve to get gunned down like he did.”
