According to family members, 49-year old Willis Williams Junior was shot to death while driving to the store.

The shooting happened after a day at work at a West Palm Beach barbecue restaurant. His employer, Deririck McCray, says he was devastated by the news.

Jaquita tells CBS 12 News that since her sister returned home, she has been receiving threatening text messages from an unknown number, saying everyone in the house is going to die.
