Coroner: Mosely was shot in the head and torso

The Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office has issued the cause of death for a gunman who opened fire in the West Side Walmart. WNIN’s John Gibson has the update:

Coroner Steve Lockyear says an autopsy determined Ronald Mosley II died of multiple gunshot wounds to the head and torso.

Evansville Police say Mosely was a former employee of the store on Red Bank Road.

They say he entered the store Thursday night with a gun and shot an employee before officers shot him to death.

Mosley left a suicide note at his home which police described as “heartbreaking.”

He had been in the care of the mental health court, and was convicted of battery against two Walmart employees last year.

EPD Chief Billy Bolin singled out Walmart manager Heather Moore for her bravery.

Bolin said Moore silently escaped the room where Mosely had employees at gunpoint when his back was turned and she called 9-1-1.

Moore then led the wounded employee to a hiding spot and rendered aid.

The wounded employee was taken to a local hospital and then transferred to an Indianapolis hospital.
