Attorneys for Duke Webb, the Special Forces Sergeant charged with killing three and wounding two others in a shooting at an Illinois bowling alley told a judge that he may suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and also has memory loss.
Elizabeth Bucko, Webb’s lawyer, said in a Winnebago County courtroom hearing that he suffers from what appears to be PTSD and memory loss. Webb is slated to go through further mental evaluations. The judge denied him bail; his arraignment is scheduled for February 16.
The criminal complaint filed in court against Webb provided more details about the shooting incident. Yet, it still doesn’t answer the most important question for investigators, which is why Webb committed the shootings. The complaint also identified Thomas Furseth, 65, Dennis Steinhoff, 73, and Jerome Woodfork, 69, as the three men that Webb has been accused of killing with two handguns.
According to the official complaint, Rockford police officers were alerted to an active shooter incident shortly before 7 p.m. the evening of December 26th. When they arrived at the scene, a witness identified Webb as the shooter. The entire incident was captured on a video surveillance camera. A witness-recorded video of the incident had initially been posted on the website of the Rockford Scanner but has since been removed.
