Delaware authorities say that a man arrested in connection with a deadly shooting was accidentally released from prison.
A Dover police news release says 27-year-old Dion Williams is wanted for assault, reckless endangerment and gun charges stemming from the June shooting at Janaid’s Salon that left 31-year-old Julius Johnson dead from complications of a gunshot wound.
The release says Williams was arrested Friday and transferred between agencies before an unspecified "communication error" led to his unintentional release.

The Delaware News Journal reports that after Williams' arraignment, Dover police took him to a court where he had an active warrant. From there, officers transferred him to the Capitol Police Department and placed him in a Georgetown prison before releasing him.
Williams remained on the loose and police said Monday that they didn't know his whereabouts.
