Sais Williams 4


Two Crossett men are being held on $400,000 bonds following a Monday night shooting in Monticello. No one was injured.

Imani Sais, 20, and Paris Williams, Jr., 23, both of Crossett, traveled from Crossett to Monticello where they allegedly planned to fight at least one person from Monticello, according to Monticello Police Chief Eddy Deaton.

Instead, Sais and Williams are alleged to have fired gunshots, striking an apartment and two vehicles at the corner of College and Bell streets in Monticello. After the shooting, Sais and Williams fled in one of two vehicles subsequently stopped in Ashley County. Each of the two vehicles had five occupants, Deaton said.

Hamburg and Ashley County law enforcement authorities stopped the two vehicles in Hamburg and all 10 occupants were taken to Monticello where they were interviewed by Monticello police. Eight were released and Sais and Williams were arrested.

District Judge Sara Hartness set Sais and Williams’ bonds at $400,000 bond each. Sais was already facing robbery charges in connection with the November 9 attempted aggravated robbery of the Pizza Hut in Crossett. His bond in that case was set at $5,000.
