Convicted felon arrested for attempted murder

BY JENNIFER CABRERA

Raymond Curtis Webb, 39, was arrested this morning and charged with attempted felony murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon after allegedly shooting another man yesterday.

At about 1:45 p.m. yesterday in the 1800 block of NE 23rd Avenue, Webb allegedly argued with the victim near a shop where the victim was getting his windows tinted. Webb was reportedly in his car, a black Chrysler 300. As the argument escalated, Webb allegedly got out of his car with a handgun and shot several rounds at the victim, striking him in the left pelvic area; he then drove away east on NE 23rd Avenue. Officers arrived within minutes and rendered aid to the victim, who was transported to UF Health Shands.

A witness nearby told Gainesville Police Department that he saw the two arguing and saw Webb get out of his car and fire several shots at the victim. The witness had known Webb for several years and was able to provide his name to law enforcement.

Two other witnesses were inside a nearby bar and told police they heard the gunshots and saw a black Chrysler 300 driving away at a high rate of speed.

Webb has 11 previous felony convictions and 8 misdemeanor convictions. He has served three state prison sentences, all drug-related, and was most recently released in 2016. He was most recently arrested in Alachua County in February and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, but the charges were dropped. His bond amount has not been set.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. 

  • Another convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Apparently criminals don’t want to follow the laws regarding firearm ownership.

    Appropriate punishment…give the victim a gun and let him return fire.

    • Shut the fuk up. If you don’t like it MOVE! You’re mad because you live in the hood yet shootings occur in the trailer park too! Have the balls to say that out loud. Not just in the comment section. You crackers get in my mf nerves.

      • Black on black crime. He gonna be a nice Ho with those long dreds in jail. He ain’t no man.

  • Why did they drop the charges of a convicted felon
    With a gun? Should be 10, 20, life. Whoever dropped
    The ball at the SAO should be fired and fined for
    Letting this POS back on the street.
