Sanford man loses independence in July 4 arrest

Accused of shooting homeless man in Lillington

Posted

A Sanford man lost his independence July 4 when he was arrested for reportedly shooting a homeless man in Lillington on May 2.

Harnett County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Michael Young reports that he was dispatched to 100 Loraine Lane in Lillington at 8:18 p.m. Young writes that upon his arrival he found Charles Lamont Moore, 43, and homeless of Lillington, in the backyard of that address. Moore was complaining of pain in his left wrist and his back. The deputy explained that someone had applied a “makeshift tourniquet” to Moore’s left arm.

Moore was uncooperative at the time and would not answer questions about who shot him, according to Young’s report.

Harnett County EMS responded to the scene on Loraine Lane and transported Moore to Womack Army Medical Center at Fort Bragg for treatment of his wounds.

An investigation eventually led to a suspect.

Maurice Antwan Moore, 39, of 52 Fern Creek Drive, Sanford, turned himself in to law enforcement officials where he was arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury. His bond was set at $1,000,000. Moore remained confined to the Harnett County Detention Center on Tuesday.
