Police say Marshaun Williams should be considered armed and dangerous

A Marion man is wanted after an incident in Carbondale last Wednesday night.

Police say 29-year old Marshaun Williams is wanted for Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Aggravated Battery, Aggravated Assault, and Unlawful Possession of a Weapon by a Felon. He already has active warrants on other charges in Jackson County.

Officers arrived to reports of a disturbance just after midnight Wednesday night in the 700 block of South Lewis Lane. They say witnesses told them the fight broke out after Williams struck another person with a gun he was holding.

The victim declined medical treatment, and Williams had already fled the scene when police arrived.
