In the span of 26 hours, Robert Sean Williams broke into an east Las Vegas valley home, used a gun from the burglary to shoot and kill a man in the Wetlands Park, then broke into an apartment where he engaged police in a lengthy standoff, firing upwards of 20 shots toward officers and striking a squad car, prosecutors said Wednesday during opening statements of his trial.
