WEST MEMPHIS, AR -
WEST MEMPHIS, AR (WMC-TV) - Crittenden County Sheriff Dick Busby and his Chief Deputy W. A. Wren were still recovering at The MED Friday. Busby is in serious condition and Wren is in critical condition.
Some of Wren's family was in the Walmart parking lot where the deadly shootout happened.
Customers who were inside the West Memphis Walmart said the gunfire was so loud they thought people were being shot inside the store. While Libby Wren took shelter inside, her brother-in-law was outside in the line of fire.
"I ran out back, as many others did, and we ran to the automotive end," Libby Wren said, "and some of us got behind the wooden fence on that end of the store and I called my husband."
At the time, she did not know that her brother-in-law was outside, wounded in the gunfire.
"I heard the gunshots," Libby Wren said. "Little did I realize that W. A. was involved."
Libby Wren and her husband, Russell, were back at The MED for visiting hours Friday. They said W. A. Wren is critical but stable and holding his own.
Russell Wren said he was overwhelmed by the community's outpouring of support.
"Sheriff Luttrell and his crew have been so nice," he said.
W. A. Wren may need more surgery. Relatives asked that people keep the wounded officers in their thoughts and prayers.
"He's a strong fellow," Russell Wren said, "and we feel sure that he'll make it through this."
Libby Wren said among the many visitors who have come to express their concern, the sister of murdered West Memphis officer Bill Evans stands out.
