MacArthur Center shooting case continued as lawyers review surveillance video


NORFOLK, Va. – The man charged in a deadly shooting near MacArthur Center was in court on Wednesday for a preliminary hearing. However, the judge agreed the case could be continued as lawyers from both sides review all available surveillance video.

Gary L. Moore faces multiple charges, including second-degree murder and two counts of malicious wounding. It’s in relation to the April 2 shooting in the 300 block of Monticello Avenue. When Norfolk Police officers arrived that evening, they found a man outside the mall who had been shot. That man, Roosevelt McKinney, 33, of Norfolk, was pronounced dead.

A woman and another man were also hurt in the shooting. They were both taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

In May, Moore invited members of the media to the Norfolk jail so he could give a public statement. He stated, “First of all, I turned myself in, and that wasn’t publicly announced. I feel that as if the media is working hard to tarnish my name, and I just want them to do the same thing – work as hard to free me once they find out the truth.”

Moore also added, “Once you all find out the truth, I want you all to work as hard to get me out.”

When asked, “What is the truth?” he responded, “You’ll find out that I’m innocent.”

The preliminary hearing was rescheduled for December 19 in Norfolk District Court.
