Convicted felon arrested for attempted murder


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.
