Suspect in Police Standoff Identified


Turlock resident Cahauri Edward Williams, 19, was arrested and charged with murder following a tense, hour-long standoff with police at his Turlock residence Thursday.

The standoff at the corner of North Walnut Road and Somerset Court forced the lockdown of Turlock Junior High School and A Special Place Daycare.

Williams was wanted by the Stockton Police Department for the shooting death of Phi Vong, 38. Vong was shot dead on Dec. 16, 2013, on Lariat Lane in Stockton.

Stockton Police contacted the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force, who in turn contacted Turlock police for assistance in locating and executing the warrant for Williams.

Prior to the standoff at the residence, law enforcement believed Williams’ vehicle was near TJHS, leading to a lockdown on the campus. However, he was not in the vehicle and the lockdown was lifted within minutes.

Once Marshals and TPD discovered Williams was in his residence, they responded with force. At least 10 different law enforcement vehicles and scores of officers responded to the scene.

Williams’ mother and other family members came to the scene and convinced him to come out of the residence peacefully, which he did. Other people were also in the residence during the standoff, but they were unharmed.

Williams has two prior narcotics possession arrests, including one for concentrated cannabis. He was also arrested by TPD on Feb. 14 for commercial burglary for stealing a cell phone at Target while possessing a concealed and loaded firearm. Another juvenile was also arrested with Williams.

Williams is the second man to be arrested in relation to Vong’s death. Kalom McCoy, 33, was arrested in Patterson on Jan. 22.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
