Suspect arrested and charged with killing Roddy White’s brother

There has been an arrest made in the investigation into the shooting death of Falcons wide receiver Roddy White’s half-brother.

The Charleston (S.C.) Post and Courier reports that Charleston police have arrested Darnell Lafayette and charged him with murdering Tyrone Moore Jr. and possession of a firearm in a violent crime. Lafayette allegedly approached Moore outside a club and shot three times, hitting Moore twice and killing him. Assistant Sheriff Mitch Lucas said that there was an earlier altercation between the two men, but that police don’t know the exact nature of their disagreement.

“We don’t have … a history of reports that they were having ongoing battles,” Lucas said. “Right now, we believe they knew each other simply because of where they lived and the nature of the community out there.”

The police have not ruled out further arrests, but they believe Lafayette, who has a criminal record involving past gunplay, is the only person directly involved.

White is in Charleston with his family and we again send our condolences on their loss.

    Look guys, the gun control ship has sailed. If they didn’t make another gun there will still be more than one gun per person in the US for decades to come. What is the sense of arguing about it anymore?

    I was against owning a gun but with more and more of the needless shootings its almost a must to own one for protection.

    Great we have far too many tigger happy violent individuals in the USA. Far too many. Now my thing is you shoot and kill someone you should suffer through solitary in prison and then after 30 years because that family will suffer the rest of their lives and then you should be executed by a firing squad.

    I said this earlier on FB about another killing: “To me there is nothing worse to have out on the street and loose than a cold blooded killer. They are worse than pit bulls and need to be caught and erradicated. I don’t care if they are your brother, son, cousin – they need to be arrested. SNITCH! Because the only ones you hurt by not snitching is yourself and the community because this person could kill again and the next time it will be someone YOU LOVE.

    I’m glad this guy is off the streets, but sadly he caused much pain before he left them, and it was likely for something trivial.
