Officer Gerald Moberly was shot and killed as he and an officer from the Mansfield Police Department attempted to serve an arrest warrant on a parolee. The officers located the man and Officer Moberly escorted him to his room to obtain clothes before being taken to jail. The suspect grabbed a .22 caliber handgun and opened fire, striking Officer Moberly.

The man then exited the room and exchanged shots with the other police officer. Both men were wounded superficially and ran out of ammunition. The wounded officer then transported Officer Moberly to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his wounds.

The suspect was convicted of Officer Moberly's murder and sentenced to life in prison.
