Bill Williamson, of ESPN.com, reports there are some tragic ironies involving the story of Oakland Raiders WR Javon Walker's robbery and the death of former Denver Broncos CB Darrent Williams Jan. 1, 2007.

An eyewitness who had been at the party told police he saw Williams, WR Javon Walker and a group of people enter a limo outside the club. At that point, an altercation occurred with someone outside the limo, and then someone from the limo, not Williams or Walker, got out and chased them down the street. Williams' limo then took off, at which point it was overtaken by a white SUV. Someone in the SUV, which had tinted windows, peppered the limo with 14 shots from a handgun.
