Questions surround Henning shooting

Police are looking for four suspects in a quadruple shooting in Henning.

One day after the shooting happened, investigators are answering few questions - but witnesses are speaking out.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, four people were shot at George Johnsons's mobile home - Johnson, Peggy Bennett, and two teenagers.

Neighbors tell us a fifth victim stumbled to their home to get help - her hands, feet, and mouth, were bound, but she was not shot.

Those neighbors say they immediately went next door, and found the home ransacked.

Johnson - the most seriously injured - was laying in the front yard. One wounded teenager was draped on the front porch and another wounded teen lay in a back bedroom.

Peggy Bennett had left work at the Midway Market just minutes before the shootings, then returned to the market for help after she was shot.

He co-worker, Mary Hammock, tells Action News Five, "She said there were 4, 5, people tied up in chairs and she said something about it being dark. But she was in and out of it - but she just said that someone pointed a gun at her and told her to get out."

A friend of George Johnson's, who was too scared to be identified, said Johnson, "Wasn't the type to bother anybody. He didn't bother anybody, he kept mostly to himself. He had other brothers in the area, bus as far as mingling and staying out with a lot of people he didn't do it"

Investigators believe the suspects drove away in a dark blue or dark green Chevy Caprice, and that the four men were dressed all in black.
