Just hours before Ross Muehlberger opened fire in Hastings, he spent an hour at a gun range in Wichita Falls. From 7 p.m. until almost 8 p.m. on April 20th, Muehlberger was at the Northwest Texas Field and Stream Association, home of a rifle, handgun,
and archery ranges.
Newschannel 6 has obtained this information through a public information request for GPS data. Muehlberger was required to wear an ankle bracelet GPS monitor as a condition of his release on bond for multiple charges.
His last stop before heading to Hasting's was at Southern Oaks Apartments. He stayed there for over an hour. After shooting four females at Hasting's, Muehlberger took a
surprising detour...he actually headed the opposite direction from Toby's.
According to GPS, Muehlberger then came to the curve in the road
where Royal Oak turns into Amherst. He was only there for about two minutes before
he left and headed for Toby's.
He followed Maplewood north to Toby's where he shot and killed Tim Donley. The GPS map indicates that his time there was brief; the green arrow didn't even stop.
Muehlberger's final destination was at his sister's home on Victory Avenue. It was there police say he shot and killed himself.
Newschannel six also requested GPS tracking information on Muehlberger for the week leading up to the shooting.
Despite an attorney general ruling that said the City of Wichita Falls had to honor that request, the city did not turn that information over to Newschannel 6.
