Buckhorn shooter on the loose
BUCKHORN, Mo. (Oct. 13, 2009) — A shooter appears to be on the loose in the Buckhorn area near the old Witmore Farms restaurant.

Sheriff J.B. King said only preliminary information is available and he doesn’t yet have a clear description of the alleged shooter.

“At this point we don’t know what we’ve got,” King said. “But we do advise everybody who has heard about the shooting to keep their eyes open and use common sense.”

Based on victim reports, a woman came to Witmore Farms about 3:45 p.m. Tuesday and said a man in the car with her had been shot in the leg by a person firing from an older model black vehicle, possibly a Dodge Dart. Waynesville police, Waynesville firefighters, Pulaski County sheriff’s deputies and Pulaski County Ambulance District paramedics responded and found a man with a gunshot wound to the leg who said he had been shot in the area of Roscoe Road. Emergency personnel attempted to call for a helicopter ambulance to airlift him for treatment but the rescue helicopters could not fly due to weather conditions; ground ambulance crews transported him to an unidentified hospital for treatment.

As of 5 p.m., King said the vehicle has not been located despite an extensive manhunt by deputies and other law enforcement agencies.

“We have a number of cars in the immediate area looking up and down the gravel roads, but so far we have not found anybody,” King said.
