Fayetteville police have released the name of the officer who was shot during a six-hour standoff at Bedford Loop Apartments Sunday morning.

The officer is Blake Williamson, an employee of the Fayetteville Police Department since April 2009. Prior to his service in Fayetteville, Williamson worked as an officer for the Russellville Police Department for over eight years.

Williamson was struck by a bullet in the leg just above the ankle when Sergio Andrade fired several rounds at officers from the balcony of an apartment.

According to a news release issued Monday, Williamson underwent surgery on Sunday to remove the bullet and has since been released from the hospital.

Andrade (aka De La Rosa, Andrade-Martinez), 51, of Fayetteville, faces six counts of Attempted Capital Murder, two counts of Aggravated Assault, one count of Battery 1st Degree, and one count of Terroristic Act.
