According to Prince George's County police charging documents obtained by the outlet, around 11:30 a.m. on May 13, Littlejohn, 31, went to the District Heights home of Donte Williams, 28, and the two got into a dispute.

A witness claimed Littlejohn demanded Williams pay him money he accused him of owing before allegedly shooting the man, police said.

“Some of the allegations that were mentioned in court today are very concerning,” Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy said at the bond hearing, WTOP reported. “Potentially, we’re talking about a dispute over $10. It’s almost unimaginable, unbelievable.”

Williams was pronounced dead at an area hospital.
