Alleged NWMS shooter to plead guilty


According to attorneys representing him, the suspected Noblesville West Middle School shooter, David Moore, will enter a guilty plea in Hamilton County court.

Attorneys Chris Eskew and Ben Jaffe from Eskew Law are representing Moore, who was previously scheduled to appear in court next week, Sept. 10 and 11. A continuance was granted Sept. 5 for a new hearing at 9 am. Nov. 5. Moore will appear in front of Hamilton County Circuit Court No. 1 Judge Paul A. Felix.

Moore, a seventh grader at NWMS at the time of the shooting on May 25, is alleged to have opened fire in his science class after asking to be excused, returning with .22 and .45 caliber handguns. Classmate Ella Whistler, 13, now an eighth grader at the school, was shot seven times, and teacher Jason Seaman, 29, three times. Only the .22 caliber handgun was used.

Moore first appeared publicly in court on June 11 where original fact-finding hearing dates of June 25 and 26 were set. Moore’s attorneys filed a motion for a continuance June 18, which set the Sept. 10 and 11 fact-finding hearing dates. The third motion for a continuance was filed Sept. 5, setting the Nov. 5 court date.
