Fact-finding hearing in Noblesville school shooting delayed


NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) – A fact-finding hearing of the Noblesville school shooting suspect has been delayed.

According to Hamilton County chief deputy prosecutor, the court issued an order continuing the contested fact-finding hearing that had been set for Monday and Tuesday

A new date for the hearing has not yet been set.

A 13-year-old boy, David Moore, is accused of shooting two people at a Noblesville middle school in May.

Prosecutors said Moore shot science teacher Jason Seaman and 13-year-old Ella Whistler.

Prosecutors said Moore cannot be waived to adult court under Indiana law because he is not facing a murder charge. 

Investigators have not revealed how Moore got a .22 caliber handgun, a .45 caliber handgun and a knife inside the school. They also have not revealed a motive.
