the beginning and end of the event
At 9:59 pm on Thursday night, the Evansville-Vanderborough County Central Dispatch began calling.
The shooting lasted about 15 minutes, according to Evansville Police.
An employee meeting was set for 10 p.m., and employees were beginning to gather in the break room. According to Anna Gray, a spokeswoman for the Evansville Police Department, Mosley entered the room, ordered the employees to line up along a wall, and held his gun at gunpoint.
The two employees were told to stay in the middle of the room. Mosley shot a female Walmart employee in the head, police said. She was carried to safety by her colleague, who used her shirt to compress her wound.
The shooter was former Walmart employee Ronald Ray Mosley II.
The 25-year-old had previously attacked four employees at the same store in 2022. An ongoing criminal case was pending in the Vanderborough County Mental Health Court for four misdemeanor charges.
In that case, he held a hearing on the day of the shooting. According to Vanderborough County Prosecutor Diana Moores, Mosley appeared at that hearing, which was “uncharacteristic.”

Multiple law enforcement officers shot and killed Mosley after he fired his weapon at the direction of police. No officers were injured, according to the Evansville Police Department and the Vanderborough County Sheriff’s Office.
The Vanderborough County Coroner’s Office said Mosley died after suffering “multiple gunshot wounds to the head and torso.”
As of Monday afternoon, the coroner’s office has not released a full autopsy report.
how many people were in the store
Evansville Police estimate that about 40 shoppers were inside the store at the time of the shooting. No shoppers were injured.

state of the victim
Evansville Police have not released the name of the victim, but Amber Cook, 28, is reportedly the employee who was shot Thursday night.
Cook will need multiple surgeries for his injuries, according to a GoFundMe arranged by his mother. An update came out on Sunday that Cook’s second surgery has gone well.
where did the gun come from
The gun used on Thursday was a 9mm, but police have not specified, or at least not made public, how Mosley obtained it.
At a press conference on Friday, Gray said the magazine was found at the scene. However, it could not be confirmed whether Mosley reloaded.
Gray said detectives were still investigating how many shots were fired.
What was written in the reported suicide note
Evansville Police Chief Billy Bolin reported Friday that Mosley left a suicide note at his home and was found by officers serving a search warrant.
At a press conference, Bolin said he did not want to discuss the contents of the memo, but Mosley said, “I was absolutely going to die last night.”

When will Westside Walmart reopen?
Shoppers should choose another location to shop at this point. The store was handed over to Walmart by law enforcement early Friday morning.
In a statement sent to Courier & Press, Walmart said its stores remain closed while it provides support to its employees and determines next steps.
“A reopening date has not yet been determined,” the statement said.
