Teen indicted in killing of basketball coach

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WVLT/AP) -- A Shelby County grand jury has indicted a teen in the killing of a Ridgeway High School assistant basketball coach.

19-year-old Dwayne Moore is charged with First Degree Murder in the death of 49-year-old Jimmy McClain.

The cause of McClain's death has not been released, but Moore was arrested March 5 on gun charges. Those come from a burglary on Jan. 30th in which a custom Bushmaster AR15 rifle was stolen, along with ammunition and accessories.

On March 5, detectives received a photo from an anonymous source that shows Moore holding the rifle.
