Police: Nightclub murder suspect turns himself in

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) -- Trammell Moore, 18, is in the custody of Pine Bluff police after turning himself in. Moore is suspected of murdering one man and wounding three other people in a nightclub shooting over the weekend.

Police say Moore shot and killed Walter Ashley Jr. at the III Gables nightclub on Pullen Street in Pine Bluff. The incident sparked a public outcry in which some community leaders called for the club to be shut down.

Investigators also say Moore was arrested back in late May for the murder of James Moten Jr., who was found dead in the backyard of a home along Fox Street. Police say Moore was freed during that investigation because there was not enough evidence to charge him at the time.

Moore was taken into custody without incident, according to police. The investigation is ongoing.
