 LONGVIEW (KYTX) - Joseph Fountain lives just a few yards away from this mobile home. Fountain did not want to appear on camera but says what he saw Saturday night will never be forgotten.. 
"The girl was laying face down on the front porch, gasping, trying to get air. The mother was leaned over the top of her saying - help me help me, my boyfriend shot my daughter.' -

Joseph Fountain, an eyewitness  says 17-year old Jacklyn Flores layed motionless on this porch.  
"I seen him grab the mother by the hair and try to drag her into the house, but she wasn't leaving her daughter."

The Gregg County Sheriff's Office reports that the shooting happened just after 7 p.m. Saturday off of Gamel Street.

Fountain alleges that he saw the man shoot Flores over 10 times, and then shoot her mother over 5 times.  
"Fountain says he stepped out onto his porch when he heard the first shots, and began to run to help. But he saw the loaded gun, and had to duck over here for cover."

"He went inside to grab what looked to be a box of shells, or something. He came out and drove off like nothing had happened."

The suspect, 36-year-old Jaime Lopez Camposano.,was found late Saturday in Upshur County and is being held in the Upshur County Jail.  

The landlord of this property said the man was drunk, and got angry after Flores asked to go to a local carnival. He says he spoke with the mother earlier in the day, and she is now recovering from the attack. The suspect has been charged with DWI, and murder.
