An 18 year old Navasota high school student died in Bedias Thursday night following what the Grimes County sheriff says was “random shots into a crowd”.

According to a news release, Anthony Demilo Williams was taken by family members a few blocks from the shooting to a medical station. Williams was transported to the Madisonville hospital where he died.

An autopsy will be done in Dallas.

Sheriff Don Sowell told WTAW sister station Navasota News they do not have a suspect or information about a getaway vehicle.

Deputies and other first responders were sent to Bedias just after 11 p.m. Thursday.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Grimes County sheriff’s office at 936-873-2151.

Sowell is hoping they will get the same level of public assistance that led to finding a missing three year old Plantersville area boy last week.
