Mosley still at large after shooting

Damal Clayton, the 25-year-old Fort Dodge man who was shot multiple times early Friday morning in Fort Dodge, was still hospitalized in Des Moines Saturday.

Meanwhile, no arrests have been made in the search for Torre Ashton Mosley, who authorities believe is responsible for the shooting, according to Sgt. Dan Charlson, of the Fort Dodge Police Department.

Mosley was identified by the victim and witnesses, police said.

He should be considered armed and dangerous, authorities said.

The 22-year-old is wanted on warrants for attempted murder, criminal gang participation, going armed with intent and felon in possession of a firearm.

After the shooting, multiple firearms and large quantities of narcotics were seized from several Fort Dodge homes that were simultaneously searched by the Fort Dodge Police Department/Webster County Sheriff’s Office Special Emergency Response Team.

“We’re following up on all and any tips that come in,” Charlson said Saturday.

Anyone with information on Mosley is asked to call the Fort Dodge Police Department at 573-1426 or Webster County Crime Stoppers. Tips can also be sent anonymously online at wccrimestoppers.com or by texting “LEC” and the tip to 274637.

Law enforcement is also still investigating another shooting in Fort Dodge.

Wendel Clark’s death in October was ruled a homicide by the state medical examiner’s office.

Clark, 30, of Fort Dodge, died after he was shot twice.

Webster County Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot and killed Clark.

Police found Clark unconscious in the driver’s seat of his car Oct. 7 in the 10 block of Fourth Avenue Northwest. Police were called when someone spotted the car in their backyard, according to Police Chief Kevin Doty.

In addition to the award posted in Clark’s case, an anonymous donor offered to match the $2,500 if another Webster County homicide is solved as well.

On Sept. 29, Roger Brown, 55, was found dead of a gunshot wound in his trailer in Dayton.

Webster County Sheriff Jim Stubbs said Brown’s body was discovered by two women after Brown failed to show up to an appointment with them.

The crime remains under investigation by the Webster County Sheriff’s Department and Dayton Police Department.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation is assisting in both homicides.
