The Evansville Police Department in Indiana has identified the suspect in a shooting that occurred at a Walmart store in the city on Thursday evening as 25-year-old Ronald Roy Mosley II.
At least one person was injured in the incident and the suspect was killed during an exchange of gunfire with the police.
The female victim’s name and age were not immediately known, however, Officer Taylor Merriss stated that she was able to communicate when taken away from the scene.
The police and Vanderburgh County sheriff’s department responded to the active shooter report at around 10 p.m. local time. After locating the suspect, police announced that the “threat had been neutralized and [the suspect] was in custody” at 10:14 p.m.
Merriss stated that the body camera footage was “eerie” due to the suspect being spread throughout the store and shooting at officers.
Anna Gray of the police department noted that there could be additional victims who had fled the scene and asked for witnesses to come forward with any information that could aid their investigation.
Walmart released a statement expressing shock over the “senseless violence” that occurred and promised to provide support to their associates affected by the tragedy.
A news conference was planned for later Friday and Senator Mike Braun tweeted his gratitude to the Evansville Police Department for their bravery and professionalism in neutralizing the threat.
