Williams reportedly became upset with his mother's boyfriend before he pulled out a gun and fired at the man around 8:30 a.m.

However, police tell the Post the bullet from Williams' gun struck the Dunbar Elementary School across the street just as students were arriving for class.

Williams is facing attempted first-degree assault, unlawful discharge, carrying a pistol without a permit, reckless endangerment and risk of injury to a child.

The bullet was later found inside of a classroom. 

No one was injured during the incident, according to reports.
