He's accused of being the shooter responsible for a weekend shooting in Benson that injured three people including a 15-year-old football star who had recently become a father.
The teen's family said someone just walked up and started shooting, hitting 15-year-old CJ Redmond, who was an innocent bystander.
The shooting happened Saturday around 1 a.m. near an apartment complex at East Benton and South Whittington Street.
Neighbors said they heard dozens of shots ring out.
"They were walking up and just spraying bullets everywhere," a neighbor told ABC11. "Kids was all around."
Benson Police Department said Moore could still face more charges. The department also said other suspects could be involved in the shooting.
