Victim says shooting was not road rage

The victim from the road rage shooting in Jeffersonville last week tells police he was "not the agressor."

Yalanda Parrish has told police she shot Mosier because she felt threatened when the two confronted each other at 10th and Allison in Jeffersonville.  But Mosier is disputing that.

Jeffersonville police interviewed Wesley Mosier in his room at University Hospital for a half-hour.

"His account is obviously somewhat different than Mrs. Parrish. He advises us he was not mixed up in a road rage incident, that Mrs. Parrish was the aggressor," said Major Charles Thompson of Jeffersonville Police.

Mosier was well enough to talk to police. He was shot in the chest June 17th by Yalanda Parrish after he got off his motorcycle and approached her car.

"He stated he was approaching her to speak to her about her driving, which was what we speculated at the beginning and that when he approached the vehicle and got to the window that was the time when she fired the shot," said Thompson.

Yalanda Parrish told police she shot Moiser because she was afraid he was about to attack her.

The case is set to go to a grand jury in Clark County that is scheduled to convene July 9th. It will be up to that grand jury to decide if charges will be filed in the case.
