SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

The 3 rolling shootings that claimed a life and wounded 2 other people Oct. 14 caused a stir throughout Shreveport.

Employees at Youree Drive Auto Center said they heard when gunfire first erupted just a block away.

"As many shots as were fired, I said somebody got hit," recalled Doyle Festerman, who was working in the shop when the shots rang out. 

"By the time we got out here, they were up there. They had already gotten by here," he said.

"That's when I seen the guy get out of the Cutlass, start flailing his arms and stuff and run, fell down. And then he went back to the Cutlass and ran up the street right there."

Police found shell casings just feet from the side entrance to the shop, Festerman said.

It's a miracle no innocent bystander got hit, he added. 

"I'm not trying to be ugly. But they're a bunch idiots because they don't know with firing like that and excited and shells going everywhere, they don't know who they're going to hit besides the person.

"The thing is they don't know, they don't care."

He said his heart goes out to the family of the man who was killed in the shootings. 

"There's too much violence going on. I'm a 63-year-old man. When I was growing up, it wasn't like this. Things are getting too far out there."
