EPD says the female victim was life-flighted and was a former co-worker of Mosley’s–her condition is still unknown at this time.

Evansville Central Dispatch has confirmed that emergency personnel responded to a situation involving an active shooter on Thursday night.

According to Dispatch, the incident took place at the Walmart in Evansville that is located on South Red Bank Road.

The call came in at approximately 9:59 o’clock in the evening.

The suspect has reportedly been named as Ronald Mosley II, according to the police.

According to the authorities, Mosley previously held a position at the retail establishment.

According to EPD, the female victim who was shot currently works at Walmart. The woman was flown to a hospital to be treated. Her condition is currently unknown.

According to Sgt. Anna Gray of the Evansville Police Department, who spoke with FOX3 about the incident, when officers got at the scene, they went straight into the building.

Officers arrived at the site fairly quickly and went straight into the Walmart, according to Sgt. Gray. “We were provided with a description of the person of interest. After that, the officers started looking for the suspect.

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office was also dispatched to the scene of the shooting, and both deputies and police officers entered the building to search for the perpetrator of the shooting.

Vanderburgh County Sheriff Noah Robinson said, “Right away, we put together a team with the Evansville Police Department and started looking for the threat.” “You may remember that the Columbine model came up a few decades ago. This is when you secure a scene and wait for help to keep a situation under control. We no longer use that as a model. If there is active gunfire, we go right to the threat and stop it so that as few people as possible die.”

Police say Mosley opened fire on officers when they went into the building. Several police officers fired back.

Gray says that Mosley would shoot and then run away, showing the police officers the way around the store.

The assailant was taken out by gunfire and killed.

The EPD asserts that the danger has been eliminated completely.

According to Sergeant Gray, at least one person was shot and sent to the hospital; however, it’s possible that there are additional victims.

According to the officials, anyone who was present at the store or who was hurt as a result of the incident is required to get in touch with the police.

The following statement was issued by Walmart executives in response to the shooting that occurred on Thursday:

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.

We’re thankful for the local first responders and will continue working with law enforcement through the course of their investigation.
