Indiana Police Kill Former Walmart Worker Who Shot Ex-Colleague

The mother of a Walmart employee who was shot and wounded by a former co-worker inside an Indiana store in Indiana says the gunman had repeatedly threatened to kill her daughter, reports the Associated Press. Jenny Couch told WFIE-TV that her daughter, Amber Cook, 28, was targeted by Ronald Ray Mosley II because he was in love with her boyfriend. When the boyfriend told Mosley that he wasn’t interested in him romantically, Mosley became angry with Cook and threatened to kill her. “He kept sending my daughter messages, anonymous, everything. He kept calling her, telling her that he was going to kill her, that he watched her walk her dog,” Couch said.

Police said Mosley, 25, walked into a store break room where employees were meeting Thursday night and shot Cook in the face with a 9mm handgun. Another employee escaped and called 911. Police responded within minutes and fatally shot Mosley. No one else was injured among 40 employees and 40 shoppers in the store. Police Chief Billy Bolin praised a female employee who came to the victim’s aid after Mosley left the break room in pursuit of a male employee who had fled. She called 911, moved the victim to another room, locked the door and turned out the lights before Mosley returned looking for the wounded woman. Mosley worked at the store until he was fired last year after being charged with battery in May 2022 for attacking four co-workers. An affidavit says Mosley told police he had issues with people at work and “lost control.” Prosecutor Diana Moers said Mosley had been complying with court-ordered mental health treatment.
