Details Released in Goshen Mass Shooting

Prosecutor Vicki Becker speaks to the press with Sean Pounds, stepfather of the victims, by her side.

Elkhart County prosecutor Vicki Becker held a press conference Monday to discuss the Goshen mass shooting that killed two and injured three over the weekend.

Although authorities were somewhat cagey concerning details of the May 21st crime, the perpetrator was identified as David Valera Morales, 20. He died at a Goshen Hospital following the shooting, but it’s currently unknown if his wounds were self-inflicted.

All four victims of the attack on Rosedale Court were members of the Arellano-Rios family. Richard Rios (age unknown) died at the scene. The remaining three victims are Rios’s siblings. Police have withheld names because of their ages, but two girls were airlifted to a trauma hospital in Fort Wayne and another was taken to a trauma hospital in South Bend. Their stepfather, Sean Pounds, said they are doing “as well as can be at this point in time.”

No motive has been released for the shooting. At the news conference, Elkhart County Prosecutor Vicki Becker stated, “There will not be details at this point in time regarding the roles of any individuals involved in what occurred.”

The investigation is ongoing.
