Police say a former Walmart worker shot and injured a former coworker on Thursday night at the Evansville, Indiana store where he had worked. According to a press conference held by authorities on Friday, the 25-year-old guy walked into a regular team meeting armed with a rifle and ordered a group of around a dozen people to form a line against a wall.
Evansville Police Chief Billy Bolin informed reporters that the nighttime shift supervisor escaped the room when the shooter, later identified as Ronald Ray Mosley, turned his back and dialed 911. Bolin claimed that the shooter then shot a woman and fled the scene.
According to Bolin, the team leader observed the gunman leave the break room where the meeting was placed and come back to treat the injured woman. According to the chief, she concealed the victim after assisting him into another room, locking the door behind them, and turning off the lights. Once again, the gunman entered the break room.

“I have no doubt that he was going back to finish what he started, and we would probably have a dead victim today instead of one that’s alive,” Bolin said. On Friday, authorities held a press conference where they revealed grainy body camera footage of police officers confronting the gunman inside the store and engaging him in gunfire, which ultimately resulted in his death.
Sgt. Anna Gray, a police spokesperson, told reporters Thursday night that “There were multiple times that he was actually shooting at officers before they actually were able to shoot him,” The chief stated a suicide note was discovered at the suspect’s house after the shooting.
Bolin stated, “He absolutely planned to die last night,” and added, “and it’s really sad when you hear that somebody is in that state, and at the same time, it makes you angry.” Gray estimated that there were around 40 customers in the store at the time of the incident. She also mentioned that about 40 Walmart personnel were present. Nobody else was hurt that anyone knew of.
The shooter was present in court on Thursday, according to Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Diana Moers. As part of his treatment in a mental health court after pleading guilty to four charges of battery related to an incident involving his coworkers last year, he was required to check in with authorities every two weeks, Moers said.
The prosecutor stated that she was unable to disclose the nature of the gunman’s mental health therapy. The Walmart statement read, “The entire Walmart family is shocked by the senseless violence that occurred at our Evansville store, and our hearts are with our associate at this time. As we learn more, we’ll do everything we can to support our associates as they cope with this tragedy.” On November 23rd, the manager of a Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia, brought a firearm into the shop, killing six customers and staff before taking his own life.
