A former Los Angeles Angels draft pick was shot and killed in suburban Atlanta last year following a dispute over candy that began with a group of children and escalated to include adults at an apartment complex, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Stacie Williams, 25, who was already in Fulton County, Ga., jail on unrelated charges linked to a domestic dispute, is accused of shooting Ryan Bolden, 23, of Madison, Miss. He was served with an arrest warrant Thursday and is being held without bond, the report says.

The shooting took place Dec. 17, 2014, at an apartment complex in College Park, Ga., when the son of a friend of Bolden’s told his father that another boy had punched him in the face over a piece of candy, the news outlet writes. That’s when Bolden, along with the child’s father, returned to the scene in an effort to determine what happened. Violence reportedly erupted among the adults when an unnamed assailant, according to the report, punched the child’s father. Bolden and the father reportedly left the scene.

But minutes later another confrontation erupted while Bolden was seated in his Mercedes-Benz. Williams reportedly dragged Bolden from the driver’s seat and allegedly fired a shot at Bolden, striking him in the chest. Bolden allegedly returned fire with his own weapon, but Williams fled the scene, according to the police report.

Bolden was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he died.
