Authorities are looking for a Philadelphia woman who, according to investigators, shot and killed her mother’s fiance in the lobby of an apartment building in Lower Merion on New Years Eve.

Officers from the Lower Merion Police Department were called to the parking lot of the Delwyn Apartments shortly after 8:30 a.m. Friday over reports of a domestic feud, investigators said.

Police say Adrionne Reaves and her fiancee Jodie Furman told officers they had a verbal argument and agreed to go their separate ways for the night.

Reaves arranged for his daughter to pick him up from nearby Lord and Taylor’s house, but they first returned to the apartment’s parking lot to find a set of lost keys, investigators said.


There, authorities believe Reaves met her fiancé and mother, Florence Furman, who came to the apartment complex after her daughter alleged that Reaves “got hold of her.”

Surveillance footage shows Reaves and the three women in the lobby when Reaves suddenly collapses, police said. Shortly thereafter, police allege that 24-year-old Samiyah Williams was seen leaving the lobby.

According to investigators, Williams is the daughter of Jodi Furman and lives with grandmother Florence Furman.

Prosecutors allege that 24-year-old Samiyah Williams shot dead her mother’s fiancé in the lobby of a building in Lower Merion.

Williams, who police say legally owns a 9mm semi-automatic handgun and is licensed to carry in Philadelphia, is charged with first degree murder and related offenses.

Investigators said Williams was 5 feet, 127 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. She is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about Williams’ whereabouts or the fatal shooting should contact the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office or local authorities.
