Officials are calling Saturday's murder in Lenoir County a gang related incident.
Deputies say three men, Clayton Turner, David Ormond, and Timothy Gray are all members of the Hard Legs Gang, and all three are now in jail charged with an open count of murder. Deputies say early Saturday morning, these three men beat and killed 19 year old Bradley Moore, also a member of their gang. With all three men in custody, the focus has now shifted to possible retaliation for the killing.
Moore was transported to Lenoir Memorial Hospital where he later died from his injuries. An autopsy was performed but the results are not in yet. The district attorney may also charge two females that were in the same car as the three men with lesser charges in this killing.
