JONESBORO -- "Just a pop you know, sounded like maybe a firecracker, or a car backfiring, maybe something like that,"said one witness.
"All of the sudden, I saw a man fall, and I screamed to Debbie, and I said the man is fallen,"said another witness.
The man is Bill Webster, and he had just been shot two times outside the doors of his own law office on Franklin street in Jonesboro.
Witnesses describe the person who shot Webster as a heavyset man in his 60's or 70's, wearing a camouflage jacket, and a black hat.
"The Criminal Division of the Jonesboro Police Department is following up on some leads at this time, and they are looking to question an individual associated with this crime,"said Sgt. Steven McDaniel.
Bill Webster was transported to St. Bernard's, where he underwent several hours of surgery for gunshot wounds to the face and the abdomen.
