He was pronounced dead at Lincoln Hospital.

His 16-year-old friend, who was also shot, arrived at Lincoln Hospital a short time later with a gunshot wound to the arm.

He was expected to survive. His name was not released.

Moore was described as an up and coming basketball player, practicing most of the day on the local courts.
