2013 Asbury Park shooting death suspect charged with murder
More than four years after a shooting death on an Asbury Park street, a city man is charged with pulling the trigger.
Dominique Moore, 25, of Asbury Park, faces a first-degree murder charge for the death of Daniel Graves, 24 at the time of the incident, on January 10, 2013, according to the office of Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni.
Moore, held at the Monmouth County Correctional Facility in Freehold, is also charged with a second-degree count of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
If convicted of murder, Moore risks 30 years to life, with a requirement to serve 85 percent of the sentence before parole consideration. He would also be ordered to serve five years of supervised parole after release.
The weapons charge carries a maximum 10-year sentence on conviction, and a mandatory minimum of one-third of the sentence imposed.
Asbury Park Police were dispatched to Bangs Avenue at Dewitt Avenue at about 8:20 PM on January 10, 2013, on a report of shots fired.
Graves was found, still alive, with multiple gunshot wounds. He died at 9:57 PM at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.
Investigators determined that Graves exited a pizzeria, followed by a small group, and was shot shortly afterward. Investigators did not elaborate on any possible relationship between the defendant and victim, of on the nature of the group that followed Graves.
Authorities did not disclose whether Moore has hired an attorney. The county's case is headed by Assistant Prosecutor Meghan Doyle.
Charges are accusations. Defendants are presumed innocent unless, and until, found guilty in a court of law.
