Suspect in Christmas Day Shooting of New York Minister and Her Son Identified

Police said Nadia Williams, 30, opened fire on a minister at the First Central Baptist Church and her 19-year-old son.

Cops on Monday identified a woman they are seeking in the shooting of a Staten Island minister and her son in what may have been a case of mistaken identity.

Police said Nadia Williams, 30, opened fire on Monique Hall, 42, a minister at the First Central Baptist Church in Stapleton, and her 19-year-old son, Dayvon, at about 3:20 p.m. on Christmas as the two drove past Highview Ave. and Fillmore St. in New Brighton.

The gunfire came from a black SUV that had been tailing the mother and son for a brief time, but police have no motive for the attack, sources said.

A bullet hit Monique Hall in the back, while gunfire grazed her son’s head and shoulder. She drove home in a panic and called 911, cops said.

Investigators tracked Williams through her getaway vehicle, cop sources said.

Williams, who also goes by Jessica Giles, is black, 5-foot-10 and 110 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair, cops said.

Cops ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
