Another teen charged with first-degree murder in shooting death of man in Charlotte

Two teen boys have been arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the shooting a 30-year-old man, police said.

Officers Thursday arrested a 15-year-old boy in the Oct. 7 shooting of Maurice Moore, according to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department news release. Police earlier arrested a 13-year-old boy Monday.

Police found Moore shot on the 2900 block of Baltimore Avenue, near Remount Road, at about 9 p.m.

The 13-year-old attended Turning Point Academy, an alternative school for students who violated Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ code of conduct, officials confirmed.

According to North Carolina statutes, a juvenile 13 or older charged with a Class A felony, such as first-degree murder, must be transferred to adult criminal court without a transfer hearing.

On the same block in March 2022, a 13-year-old boy and 14-year-old Kyrin Parker were shot near Southside Homes. Parker, who attended Randolph Middle School, later died at the hospital, The Charlotte Observer previously reported.
