Businessman Arrested In Rocky Mount Teen's Shooting Death www.wral.com/news/9487838/detail.html POSTED: 5:14 pm EDT July 8, 2006 UPDATED: 7:05 pm EDT July 8, 2006 ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. -- The owner of a Rocky Mount vegetable stand has been arrested in the shooting death of a teen who allegedly tried to rob him. According to police, 16-year-old Emanuel Harris attempted to steal a cash box from the stand on N. Raleigh Street around 10:30 a.m. Saturday. The proprietor of the business, 65-year-old Joshua Moore, allegedly fired one round from a revolver, striking Harris in the chest. Harris later died from his injuries. Local residents said Moore operated the stand out of the back of his truck every Saturday morning at the same location. Harris' father, Ricky Parker, told WRAL that his son was unarmed at the time of the shooting. He said that his son didn't deserve to die for his alleged crime. "It's something that I'll have to carry around with me," said Parker. "He didn't have to die like that." After consulting with the District Attorney’s office, police charged Moore with second-degree murder. He is currently being held at the Edgecombe County Detention Center on $35,000 bond.
