The Jonesboro Police Department has continued to pursue a number a leads following the shooting death of William Keith Gosney at his Jonesboro home, just after 9:00pm on Monday 05/12/14. Gosney was shot multiple times and the investigation is still focused on the likelihood that Gosney was known to his assailant and was specifically targeted. Although the victim was able to make a statement to responding officers, he was unable to give the suspect’s name. A number of potential witnesses or individuals that may have information concerning Gosney’s activities and movements prior to the incident have already been contacted and investigators believe that individuals who may have pertinent information have yet to come forward.  

Investigators have also located surveillance video at a nearby business in the area that might yield additional suspect information.  A vehicle was captured on video leaving the area at a high rate of speed immediately after the incident occurred. (Photo attached) At this time, investigators are considering the occupants of this vehicle only as a person(s) of interest. The vehicle appears to be a late model four door passenger car of unknown make and model.

A reward of $3,000 is being offered for definitive information leading to the identification of the person (s) responsible for this crime.  Anyone with information regarding this vehicle or this incident is urged to contact the Jonesboro PD Criminal Investigation Division at 935-6710 or Crimestoppers at 935-7867.
