The victims met on Craigslist and agreed to meet at a local grocery store to complete a gun purchase. However, the family thought that Moreland and Smith were shooting at them.

“When [Moreland and Smith] entered the vehicle, the white men said they heard a gun being racked,” said Sgt. Jeremy Lewis of the Moore Police Department. “So one of them fired four rounds.”

Justice Writer Shuan King refered to the killing as a modern day lynching.

Moreland was a father and his grandmother said he was a phenomenal dad.
“Very, very good daddy. He took care of his little boy and the boy is going to be lost without his daddy,” she said.
