A former employee shot at least one person in an Evansville Walmart, then was killed by police Thursday night.

The calls for an active shooter came in at 9:59 p.m. at the Walmart on South Red Bank Road and police were quick to respond.

Once officers were able to get inside the store, the man got into a shootout with police throughout the store. Police were able to shoot and neutralize the man, who is now deceased from his injuries. No officers were hit by the gunfire.

“There were multiple times that he was actually shooting at officers before they were able to shoot him. At this time we do not know how many other people he shot at…” said Sgt. Anna Gray with Evansville Police outside of the Walmart on Thursday.

Evansville Police say that the one victim was taken to the hospital and their condition is unknown.

Police are still trying to determine if there were any other victims from the shooting. Sgt. Gray says that anyone who may know more about the shooting, should contact police immediately.

The suspect shooter has been identified as Ronald Mosley II.

The investigation is still ongoing.
