Richmond Police: Road rage incident sparked shooting in Lowe’s parking lot; suspect arrested

News

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Police say a road rage incident led to a man being shot in the parking lot of a Richmond Lowe’s last week.

The shooting occurred shortly before 12:30 p.m. last Monday, July 22, in the parking lot of the Lowe’s in the 1600 block of West Broad Street. When police arrived, they found an adult male suffering from a gunshot wound that was originally described as a life-threatening. The jury was later downgraded to non-life threatening and the victim has since been released from the hospital.

Investigators later determined that the incident began as a road rage incident. The suspect, 32-year-old Theron T. Mosley, allegedly followed the victim a few blocks to the parking lot where a confrontation ensued.

Mosley, of the 2900 block of Woodcliff Avenue, was apprehended last Thursday by members of the U.S. Marshals Regional Fugitive Task Force. He’s been charged with Attempted Murder and Use of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony.

“We appreciate the help we received from our partners in the VCU Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Service,” Major Crimes Lt. Richard Edwards said. “Together we were able to bring this case to a swift and safe conclusion.”

Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to call Major Crimes Detective P. Ripley at (804) 646-0423 or contact Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000 or at www.7801000.com. The P3 Tips Crime Stoppers app for smartphones may also be used. All Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.
