Second man pleads guilty in Saleh's Market shooting

Posted:

Kevin Moore, 29, pleaded guilty Thursday to charges of murder for the shooting deaths of the owner and an employee of Saleh's Market. The incident took place on Sep. 5 of last year, when a robbery attempt ended in 55-year-old Jagtar Bhatti and 20-year-old Pawan Singh being shot to death.

Moore's plea was guilty mentally ill on both counts of the murder charges. While the judge ruled that he was competent to stand trial, Moore claims that he was impaired at the time of the shooting. Moore cited post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia as illnesses he suffers from, but says he knew right from wrong when the shooting occurred.

Twenty-two-year-old Richard Gross, Moore's accomplice in the shooting, pleaded guilty to murder charges in December.
