Man faces life in prison for 2012 fatal shooting in the West End

A gang member who shot and killed a man in the West End is likely to spend life in prison for the 2012 murder.

Raemon Moore, 27, was convicted Aug. 20 of murder and several other charges, and is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 15, according to a news release from Fulton County District Attorney Paul L. Howard Jr.’s office.

On July 17, 2012, Moore fatally shot 21-year-old Asiel Parker after a verbal dispute.

Moore, who was also found guilty of participation in criminal street gang activity, witnessed an argument between Parker and a member of the “Goodfellaz” gang near the front entrance of the mall at West End, according to the release. Moore, who is a member of the gang but was not involved in the dispute, then pulled a gun and shot Parker twice.

Moore fled the scene and was identified through surveillance video and photos.

The district attorney’s office said the mandatory minimum sentence is life in prison.
