MOBILE, Ala. -- A FOX10 Fugitive Files suspect who police say tried to kidnap his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint is now locked up in Mobile County Metro Jail.

Colin Marcellus Williams, 21, of Mobile, faces kidnapping, reckless endangerment and terrorist threat charges, among others, according to jail records.

He was booked into the jail early Friday morning, and jail records show the FBI as the arresting agency.

Williams was featured as a FOX10 News Fugitive Files suspect on Nov. 21, 2018. Police told FOX10 News then that, if not for the bravery of the victim's sister, the story may not have ended well.

Police said it was five days earlier in November when Williams went to a beauty shop on Navco Road looking for his former girlfriend. They said he pulled a gun and tried to forcibly make the victim go with him.

When she broke away from him, he attempted to shoot her, investigators said.

That was when the victim's sister intervened, allowing the victim to escape, police said. Williams fired shots, but the women were not injured, they said.

Specific charges against Williams are discharging a gun into an occupied or unoccupied building or vehicle, third-degree domestic violence (harassment), third-degree domestic violence (harassing communication), first-degree criminal trespassing, two counts reckless endangerment, second-degree kidnapping, harassment or harassing communications and making terrorist threats.
