Detective Mosholder succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained 19 years earlier when he was shot several times while assisting another officer. He noticed the officer following two men who were pushing a push-cart. As he was approaching the scene to backup the other officer, the other officer began lifting the cover of the push-cart to view its contents. At that point the two suspects both produced revolvers and opened fire on both officers, striking Detective Mosholder several times. Both suspects fled and neither was ever apprehended.

Detective Mosholder was never able to return to work and suffered from several debilitating illnesses as a result of the wounds.
