Police tracked down Johnson in Charlotte around 7 p.m. Thursday night.

“Our investigation led to information that Johnson was going to be at a location in Charlotte,” said Capt. Gary Lee of the Hickory Police Department. “Charlotte-Mecklenburg police met him there and took him into custody without incident.”

Williams tried to seek help at a Longhorn Steakhouse off of Highway 70 after suffering lacerations to the face and neck areas at 10:35 p.m. on Tuesday, according to police.

Authorities arrived and transported Williams to Dyre Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Williams was an employee of Yellow Cab Company.  The investigation indicates he had responded to the area to pick up a fare.

Police  later located an abandoned and unsecured cab belonging to Yellow Cab Company backed onto the sidewalk area of the former Fuddruckers Restaurant located beside Longhorn. 

Johnson is being held without bond. He is scheduled to make his first court appearance Friday.
