WAXAHACHIE — A 26-year-old individual is dead and second person hospitalized after an argument led to a fatal shooting Saturday in Waxahachie.

Deputies from the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched at 5:27 p.m. to the 1000 block of Waterford Crossing in Waxahachie on Saturday, Aug. 12 to a reported shooting.

According to Ellis County Sheriff’s PIO Sgt. Joe Fitzgerald, early reports indicated that two adults had an argument which led to one individual — identified by legal documents as Jackson Dylan Moser, 26, of Waxahachie — being shot by the other. According to the victim's mother, Moser now identifies as Gwynevere River Song. 

The department is not releasing the identity of a man who was also injured during the shooting at this time.

“Upon arrival, deputies and medics rendered aid to the injured male. American Medical Response transported the man to the hospital. [Th deceased] remained inside the residence and succumbed to injuries,” Fitzgerald said. “Justice of Peace Judge Curtis Polk Jr. with Precinct 3 ordered an inquest. The decedent was taken to the Dallas Medical Examiner’s Office.”

The investigation, which is still ongoing, is under the direction of the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division.


The fatal shooting Saturday is the second for Ellis County over the last three and a half months.

According to previous email correspondence with Fitzgerald, the shooting that resulted in the death of Ryan Timothy Wood, 30, is still under investigation and no arrests had been made as of late last week.

Fitzgerald initially told the Daily Light that Wood and a second adult male were in an argument that led to the fatal gunshot Wednesday, May 3 at approximately 9:06 p.m. in the 100 block of Mesa Road in Waxahachie. The home is a few miles outside of the Maypearl city limits.

"Upon arrival, deputies and medics rendered aid to the injured man [Wood]. American Medical Response transported the subject to the hospital where he succumbed to his injuries," Fitzgerald previously stated. "Justice of Peace Judge Jackie Miller Jr. with Precinct 2 ordered an inquest."

Fitzgerald stated Wood was then taken to the Dallas Medical Examiner's Office.
