Information Sought in Forrest City Triple-Shooting

Posted: Updated:

The Forrest City Police Department is investigating an early Sunday morning shooting which sent three men to area hospitals.

According to a police report, officers were investigating reports of a suspicious vehicle parked in a back yard at 433 Martin Luther King Drive at around 3:30 a.m., when they heard several gunshots. The dispatchers then told officers that the shots had been fired at 1106 Wilson Street, and when they arrived on the scene, officers found Jacobbie Williams, 32, and Darrell Goss, 18, both of 1106 Wilson Street, and Tony Walker, 25, 915 Hickey Street, all suffering from gunshot wounds.

Williams was shot in the rib area on his right side, Goss was shot in the stomach and left leg, and Walker was shot in the left big toe. According to FCPD officials, Williams and Walker were treated for their injuries and released. Goss was transported to the Med in Memphis where he was in stable condition this morning.

FCPD detectives said the shootings stemmed from an earlier altercation at a local nightclub and said the altercation was due to an ongoing argument between one of the men and the suspect, whose identity is being withheld, over a woman.

Anyone with information concerning the shooting is asked to contact the Forrest City Police Department at 870-633-3434 or the Forrest City Crime Stoppers at 870-261-1499. Tips received through the Forrest City Crime Stoppers, Inc., may receive a reward for information leading to the arrest and/or conviction of suspects involved in cases based on the recommendation of the Forrest City Crime Stoppers Board.

Detectives have made an arrest in connection with a shooting last month on Driftwood Street.

According to a separate press release, Freddie Lee, 35, 805 Driftwood, is free on $5,000 bond after his arrest Thursday in a Nov. 29, incident where a vehicle was shot several times.

Police said in the press release that Vickie Key told officers she had received several threatening messages from Lee and that he shot at her while she was on Driftwood Street.

Lee is charged with aggravated assault and is free on a $5,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in District Court in January.
