Clarksville police on the scene at 600 Kenwood on the morning of February 18, 2013.
CLARKSVILLE, IN (WAVE) – WAVE 3 has listened to the chilling 911 calls made just moments after a Clarksville mother of five was murdered Monday morning. Several frantic calls from witnesses came into 911 after 32-year-old Lisa Mcquirt was gunned down. The witnesses had a pretty good idea who police needed to find.
Dispatcher: "911 what's your emergency?"
Caller: "600 Kenwood, please bring an ambulance. A guy just shot a lady in the chest and he took off in the car."
"I just woke up to hearing gunshots," said another caller.
Police say Mcquirt was hanging out with friends on Kenwood Avenue when a man she met at work, Ronald Shewmaker, came looking for her.
"There is a man on Kenwood Avenue that was in a pickup truck and he left some air out of some tires and now he shot a gun," said one of the callers.
"Freaking out man, freaking out, never seen anything like this in my life," said a man in another 911 call. "She's bleeding everywhere."
Police say Shewmaker shot the Mcquirt four times. Mcquirt's family said she met Shewmaker at Bottoms Up, the club where she worked. In the past couple months they say he starting following her and even threatened to kill her last week.
Dispatcher: "Sir, I've got units on the way. Is the man still around?"
Caller: "I don't know, sir. I'm not going outside."
Dispatcher: "Do they know his name?"
Caller: "They said his name is Ron."
Dispatcher: "Do you know what kind of vehicle he drives? Is it a dark pickup truck?"
Caller: "Uhhh, it might be."
Mcquirts' mother says Shewmaker had been giving her trouble for some time.
"He's been stalking her for quite a while," said Jean Kerby. "She would go to WalMart he would show up. She would go to the store and he's right there. He's been following her quite a bit."
Shewmaker was arrested by Harrison County Sheriff's deputies at his Corydon home not long after the shooting. He was expected in court Tuesday, but court officials say he's in the hospital. They did not give any other further details.
