The Arlington Police Department is now investigating a shooting incident that occurred on May 26, 2021 at an apartment complex in the 2300 block of Windsprint Way as a double murder / suicide.

Video evidence gathered by the detectives shows the deceased adult male, who has been identified as 36-year-old Christopher Baker, forced his way into the apartment and began shooting. 

Investigators believe he shot and killed his ex-girlfriend, 43-year-old Chasity Williams, and her 15-year-old son Damajay Williams, before ultimately turning the gun on himself.

He also shot at and struck a 29-year-old female he'd picked up earlier in the evening and brought with him to the apartment complex. The department is not releasing her name at this time. She remains hospitalized, but is expected to survive. 


The Arlington Police Department responded to an unknown violent situation in the 2300 block of Windsprint Way at a local apartment complex at 5:02 a.m. on Wednesday, May 26, 2021.

The caller reported that he was heading to work and noticed a passenger car parked near his vehicle that had glass damage to the passenger window. As the man went to look further, he noticed an adult woman who appeared to be unconscious with a gunshot wound. Officers quickly arrived and this woman was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Field officers checked the license plate to the passenger car, which led them to an address to a nearby apartment in the same complex. As officers approached the apartment, they noticed the front door was partially open and appeared to have been forced open by someone. As officers entered the apartment to check the welfare of individuals, they located two adults and one teenager inside the apartment, all with apparent gunshot wounds. The three people found inside the apartment were all pronounced deceased at the location.

Investigators located two handguns inside the apartment near two of the adults found deceased. Family members have reported that two of the adults found deceased are believed to have been involved in a romantic relationship in the past.

Investigators have not determined the exact shooter, however, it is believed that the shooter is amongst those found deceased.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office will identify the deceased once next of kin have been notified. Crime Scene processing will determine which guns were used and who discharged the guns.

There were two prior calls for service at the apartment in April 2021. Both calls were related to domestic disturbances involving adults at the location. In the first case, no offense was reported to officers. In the second case, an offense report was generated and sent to detectives for follow-up.

There were no calls related to residents hearing gunshots overnight that were reported to police. Detectives have not ruled out the possibility that the shooting occurred earlier than the time that the original resident reported heading to work and finding the woman in the car.

The relationships between all individuals will be determined after official identities are determined.
