An Illinois man Second Amendmented his wife and her boyfriend to death before his rampage was ended by an off-duty FBI agent.
Lori Moore, 33, and her boyfriend Lance Griffel, 36, were at the Fifth Quarter Sports Bar and Pizzeria on Saturday to celebrate Moore’s West Peoria Community High School 1999 class reunion. More than 100 people witnessed Jason Moore, 40, storm into the bar and shoot the new couple in the head at point blank range
Just after Moore’s shots rang out, an unidentified FBI agent pulled out his own gun and planted a bullet in Moore’s own head –something police say prevented further casualties.
“You can play the ‘what if’ game over and over again, but I think it’s pretty clear in his case the presence of this officer and his ability to take very quick and very decisive action prevented a further tragedy,” East Peoria Police Chief Ganschow said.
Lori Moore and Lance Griffel were pronounced dead hours later at OSF St. Francis Hospital.
While no official motive has been released, Lori Moore filed for divorce in March of 2013, according to court records. The split was finalized in May 2013.
