Suspect accused in Portland neighborhood double shooting after escaping HIP
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- LMPD arrested a man accused of shooting two people in the Portland neighborhood.
Navea Mosley, 20, was arrested Sunday. According to an arrest report, the shooting happened July 28 at the Boone's Marathon gas station on North 22nd Street.
Authorities say when officers arrived, they found two people who had been shot. Both of the victims were taken to the hospital. According to police, the shooting was partially captured on store surveillance video. From that video, detectives identified Mosley as the shooter.
Mosley, whose street alias is Tilapia, was arrested on several outstanding warrants. During the arrest, new charges were added for assaulting an officer, fleeing from police, resisting arrest, carrying a gun as a convicted felon and receiving stolen property. Once in custody, police said Mosley admitted to the July shooting.
According to court records, Mosley had escaped from HIP custody at the time of the shooting. Jefferson Circuit Judge Charlie Cunningham placed Mosley on the Home Incarceration Program in January when Mosley pleaded guilty to a 2015 shooting case. He was supposed to follow the terms of HIP until July, which is when he was scheduled to be sentenced to a maximum of eight years.
Prosecutors objected to placing Mosley on HIP, according to a spokesperson for the Commonwealth Attorney's Office. Mosley was also charged in 2016 with escape for cutting his ankle monitor.
Most recently, court documents state the owner of the home where Mosley was allowed to stay called HIP officers on June 12 to say he could not live there anymore. HIP officers made a phone call to Mosley. Soon after the call, they received an alert that his ankle monitor was tampered with.
When officers arrived to the home, Mosley was gone, and his ankle monitor was found inside. A warrant was then issued for his arrest.
Officers caught up to him on Aug. 5 and arrested him for the HIP violation and new charges for the July 28 shooting. He is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $50,000 cash bond and is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday morning.
