09:45 AM ET 11.03 | On the school's homecoming weekend, Missouri Southern State University assistant football coach Derek Moore was fatally shot as he was leaving a movie theater Friday in Joplin, Mo., according to police. "It is not a random shooting. It was targeted," Sgt. Jared Delzell told the Los Angeles Times. The motive is under investigation, Delzell said. Police responded to reports of shots fired at 9:50 p.m. Friday outside the Northstar 14 movie theater, according to police. Moore, 37, was rushed to a hospital, where he died of his injuries. An officer arrived at the theater minutes after the shooting and took one man into custody. On Saturday, the Jasper County Prosecutor's Office filed charges against Jeffrey L. Bruner, 39, of class A felony murder and armed criminal action. Bruner was being held at the Joplin City Jail without bail. Delzell said information about the number of shots fired and Moore's injuries would not be released until after the autopsy.

Ditto, one life gone and a number of others forever affected by this.
