Gwatney aftermath: the video

Posted By on Sat, Aug 16, 2008 at 2:04 AM

Someone has posted a Youtube.com video taken in the confusing minutes just after the shooting of Arkansas Democratic Party Chairman Bill Gwatney. In the video -- which also includes the first on-scene comments to the press by Little Rock Police Department spokesman Lt. Terry Hastings and a very early interview with an Arkansas Baptist Convention employee recounting how gunman Timothy Dale Johnson entered their building and pointed a pistol at a staffer --  police are heard to shout "Go! Go! Go!" before squealing away in their squad cars, presumably in pursuit of Johnson, who was then at large in Little Rock. Johnson eventually led cops on a 35-mile chase before being forced off the road and shot in Sheridan. He later died of his wounds.
