Gainesville Police have identified a man who was shot to death on NE 12th Street Sunday.

Police say they found 43-year-old Michael T. Mosely of Gainesville in front of a home at 2824 NE 12th St. with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Police responded to the home about 3 p.m. after several witnesses called 911 and reported hearing gunshots and seeing a man down, Officer Ben Tobias said.

Witnesses told investigators the victim was in a vehicle with at least two other men in front of the house when they heard arguing and then gunshots. The car drove away with the man still on the ground. Tobias said the vehicle is described as a black sedan but further information on the suspects was limited.

Tobias said they believe the victim and suspects knew each other.

Anyone with information is asked to call Gainesville Police at (352) 393-7670 or Crime Stoppers at (352) 372-STOP.
