Suspected Gunman’s Neighborhood Reacts to Air Force Base Shooting Investigation

JACKSONVILLE, AR – According to the base website Little Rock Air Force Base has more than 8,000 active duty military and civilian members.

Another 15,000 family members live and work on and around the base. Tonight we are learning more the man responsible for storming through the air force base’s front gates.

The FBI even called out the bomb squad on Monday as part of its investigation. Neighbors say the man is quiet and easy going.

“I heard a boom big loud boom and I thought my God it’s a bomb.”

After the suspect stormed the gate at the Little Rock Air Force Base Monday, a bomb squad was called out by the FBI to the suspect’s Jacksonville home.

“He said we were just trying to get in a room we use a device to get in to a room,” says Kathy Wolf.

Kathy Wolf saw the squad roll out at her next door neighbor’s house off Maddox Road. A man she says hardly ever leaves his home.

“He’s always been easy going he works out of his garage,” says Kathy.

“I made it out okay so everything’s good.” Sheldon Brown, a base contractor was on site Monday working shortly before the man tried to get past the gates.

And jet fuel delivery men like Anthony Guidon were stranded for hours as airmen blocked the main entrance to the base.

The gate to the suspect’s home was closed off Monday night as FBI agents work to find out why the man so badly had to get through the ones under air force defense.

The suspect is in critical condition at UAMS tonight.
