Army special forces sergeant, 37, charged in shooting at Don Carter Lanes in Rockford

ROCKFORD — A 37-year-old military member has been arrested after police say he gunned down multiple people at random inside and outside Don Carter Lanes on East State Street.

Three people were killed and three others were injured in the shooting, which broke out shortly before 7 p.m. Saturday at the complex with a bowling alley, bar and off-track betting site. Most of the complex was closed per COVID-19 safety protocol, but a second-floor bar and carryout service was open.

Duke Webb of Shalimar, Florida, who is an active U.S. Army member, is being held in the Winnebago County Jail without bond. He’s scheduled to make his first court appearance at 1:30 p.m. Monday. He is charged with three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of attempted first-degree murder.

He is charged with fatally shooting three men ages 73, 65 and 69. He also is accused of shooting and wounding a 14-year-old boy, who was shot in the face and airlifted to a hospital in Madison, a 16-year-old girl, who was shot in the shoulder and treated and released, and a 62-year-old man, who is in critical condition after undergoing surgery from the shooting.

Would that he had received help with his inner demons before it came to this. Read the entire article here: Rockford Register Star

Fusk him and his inner demons. Rabid animals get put down.




A real man knows when to walk away! With they being said,,, I wasn’t there and don’t know what happened!!! Seems odd from a news report!!! But I’ll hold my judgment till more info comes out.


“That” being said


According to the Army, he is (soon to be was) an 18F at Eglin.

What the fuck was this guy’s problem? Shooting up a bunch of pensioners and teenagers bowling? Doesn’t seem like there’s any rhyme or reason to it.


I’m thinking a severe psychotic episode, Mason. Based on the limited info that’s been made public to date, that’s the only thing I can think of that makes sense.

But I’m no shrink and I could easily be wrong.


Put this guy up there with the Nashville bomber. Just don’t make no sense.


None of this makes sense, seniors and kids? How could one of our “best” act like this?
I’ll withhold judgment, but if he’s guilty of this heinous action: needle, arm, pass the sodium barbital, until arrest.


The needle might indeed be justified, Roh-Dog. But you’re right; none of this makes sense based on what little has been made public.

I can’t help but wonder if the guy had gone “around the bend” and was full-blown batsh!t crazy – both in reality and legally – at the time.

This could be a case where the unusual Scottish legal verdict of “guilty but insane” would be apropos.



MI Ranger

Isn’t it obvious? They were programming him to destroy the computers in the Nashville AT&T building (so they could not complete the forensic analysis of voting machines), but their (Manchurian Candidate style) brainwashing went awry and he ended up in Wisconsin at a Bowling alley and off track betting facility/sports bar. Why else would he just snap and start shooting with two pistols at a bunch of retirees and kids?
– Just saying…its a (conspiracy) theory!


I wonder, was the guy from the area? If not, how did he pick Rockford, Il as opposed to Rockford, Mi, or Rockford, Or.?
Apparently, he had relatives “in the Rockford area”.


Insane !!!!!!!
What causes people to snap


It could be a little thing that at one time was a real problem and now is a trash can for the people who treat mental illness, what they can treat is considered an illness and what they can’t treat or don’t want to try to work on to help is thrown into that trash can known as PTSD and they just throw pills at it and hope it will go away on it’s own.


Lars oughta be happy–he took out three Boomers…

Slow Joe


Crazy this happened the day after we had a serious discussion about Lars and his hatred for Boomers.

Hopefully that dude did not read TAH or the Commietzar’s posts in here.


How dare this shitbird
desecrate the very Rockford bowling alley
that helped get CHEAP TRICK off the ground.


Guy needs a shave and a haircut. Then hang him.

Slow Joe

I suspect PTSD will be blamed, and the guilty declared innocent.

Shitbags been using PTSD as an excuse for 2 decades now, and clueless civilians keep believing that stupid argument.


I’m sure his lawyer will use every argument available in his client’s behalf in order to raise reasonable doubt about his client’s legal culpability. That may include using PTSD as part of an insanity defense.

That’s his lawyer’s job. It’s up to the prosecution to counter those arguments.
