Assistant football coach killed in shooting

KSAL StaffNovember 2, 2013

Authorities say a football coach was shot outside a theater and later died.

Joplin police said Saturday that 37-year old Derek Moore of Joplin was shot Friday night as he was leaving the Northstar 14 Theatres. He died later at a hospital.

Moore was in his first year on the Missouri Southern football staff as the offensive line coach. He came to MSSU after three seasons at Western Illinois University in Macomb, Ill.

Police say a 39-year-old suspect was arrested shortly after the shooting and is being held at the Joplin City Jail on a 24-hour hold pending formal charges.

The university has canceled its Homecoming activities and issued a statement saying the school was “stunned and saddened” by Moore’s death.
