Suspects identified in home invasion shooting

Posted: Updated:

Dallas police released new information about a home invasion shooting that ended with the death of one suspect and the arrest of another.

According to a police arrest warrant affidavit, 47-year-old Eric Ford and his accomplice Isaiah Williams rang the doorbell of a home in the 7200 block of Concordia Lane around lunchtime on Wednesday.

The woman who lived there looked out of the window and didn't recognize either man, so she did not answer the door, the affidavit says.

When they kicked the door in and came up to the second floor, the woman was waiting with a gun, and shot at the suspects.

Isaiah Williams later died in the front yard, and police say Ford took off running. He was not injured. The 22-year-old woman who fired the gun provided a description of Ford to the police.

Later that night, a different police officer responded to a disturbance call near Vandervort Drive and Illinois Avenue in South Dallas.

The officer says he found Ford, who matched the witness's description, in a torn shirt. Ford told the officer he had been fighting with the family of his dead friend, Isaiah Williams.

After taking him to the police station, the woman who shot at the invaders identified Ford as the man who tried to break into her house.

Ford is now charged with a felony burglary charge.
