It happened moments after Johnson barged into the Arkansas Democratic party's headquarters and shot chairman Bill Gwatney.

Gwatney said the images are disturbing.

Violence which spreads across some 25 miles of Little Rock.

According to authorities, after Johnson shot Gwatney he sped away in a pickup truck. Deputies chased Johnson into the next county where they shot and killed him.

"Both families lost someone. I know what the pain and grief has been like for me and my family.  I knew the Johnson's felt the same way about their brother," Gwatney said.

And even though investigators still have no evidence that Johnson even knew party chief Bill Gwatney, Russell Gwatney said he must now find it in his heart to forgive..

"Now it's just time to figure out how to put your best foot forward and try to understand. Try to move forward and live your life," Gwatney said.
