Fact-finding hearing dates set for alleged NWMS shooter


After being postponed, fact-finding hearing dates for alleged Noblesville West Middle School shooter David J. Moore have been rescheduled.

The two-day hearing is now set for Sept. 10 and 11, beginning at 9 a.m. each day at the Hamilton County Government and Judicial Center in Noblesville. Hamilton County Circuit Court Judge Paul A. Felix will preside.

Moore, a seventh grader at NWMS at the time of the shooting on May 25, is alleged to have opened fire in his science class after asking to be excused. Classmate Ella Whistler, 13, a soon-to-be eighth grader at the school, was shot seven times, and teacher Jason Seaman, 29, three times. A .22 caliber handgun was used. Both are continuing to recover at home.

Moore first appeared publicly in court on June 11 where original fact-finding hearing dates of June 25 and 26 were set. Moore’s attorneys filed the motion for a continuance June 18.
