PHOENIX — A man was arrested on Saturday after an alleged homicide outside a mobile home, according to the Phoenix Police Department.

Maury Williamson, 35, shot and killed a woman outside the residence, police said.

Officials were called to the area of 16th Street and Broadway Road in south Phoenix for a shooting before 2 a.m. on Saturday.

When officers arrived, they found 38-year-old Genoveva Antillon, who had been shot.

As Antillon was taken to the hospital, where she died from her injuries, police began questioning multiple witnesses who were on the property and said they heard the gunshots.

After alleged homicide, suspect admitted guilt, police say

Williamson provided statements that were inconsistent with what police had heard from other witnesses, authorities said.

When detectives pried further on the inconsistencies, Williamson then admitted to shooting and killing Antillon accidentally “when he shot at a dog on the property that he thought was attacking him,” police said.

When detectives obtained a search warrant for the mobile home, they found the firearm that was used hidden inside.

The investigation remains active.
