Joplin Police have released the name of the man that was killed by someone that knew him and say prosecutors have filed murder charges against a man who pulled the trigger.

Investigators say Jeffery Bruner shot Derek Moore outside of the Northstar 14 movie theater.  Police say bond was denied for Bruner who's charged with murder and armed criminal action.

Missouri Southern State University officials confirm that Moore was an offensive line coach for their football team.  A school spokeswoman says today's homecoming festivites and game have been postponed.
