Surveillance video captures moments 73-year-old woman shot, killed in Arkansas town

HELENA-WEST HELENA, ARK. — Surveillance video captured the moment a 73-year-old grandmother was shot and killed in Helena-West Helena last month.

Now, the FBI is involved in the case as police try to track down their killer.

Helena-West Helena Police Chief James Smith said the surveillance video is not being released but it shows a person shooting the grandmother in the back of the head.

FOX13 talked to Kevin Stackhouse who lives across from Genoria Mosby. She was shot and killed in her front yard off South Fifth street. His surveillance video captured everything, so he shared it with Arkansas State Police.

“It hurt me, because I knew her and she was a church member so it hurt me to see it,” Stackhouse said.

Chief Smith said it shows the killer shoot the woman in the back of the head and continue shooting even when she was on the ground.

Stackhouse doesn’t understand why someone would do this.

“She was a loving and caring woman, she minded her own business and helped people out so it was upsetting out here,” said Stackhouse.

Investigators believe the grandmother was targeted.

Right now, Arkansas State Police is looking over two surveillance videos.

Chief Smith said Stackhouse’s footage of the shooting isn’t very clear so it was sent to the FBI.

Chief Smith said the other camera captured video of the killer’s white four-door sedan.

Stackhouse said he hopes the suspect is arrested soon.

“He just came up and did what he did, I don’t think he was just shooting,” said Stackhouse. “She minded her own business and go to her day to day, work and come home.”

Chief Smith said the video of the shooting was leaked on Facebook but investigators are not sharing it right now.

He’s hoping to share a picture of the suspect’s car Thursday.

FOX13 reached out to Arkansas State Police for more information and we are waiting to hear back.
