Stepson charged in murder of Ridgeway coach

Posted: Updated:

Turns out 19 year old Dwayne Moore is the stepson of Coach and Pastor Jimmy McClain.  Shelby County Sheriff's deputies say he even showed up to McClain's funeral and we know how they say Moore killed him.  "Multiple gunshots had been fired inside the house and he had been struck multiple times."

It's what Coach and Pastor Jimmy McClain's friends, students and even some of you have waited a month to learn. 

According to Shelby County Sheriff Bill Oldham, 19 year old Dwayne Moore, McClain's stepson shot his stepfather to death inside McClain's home but when we asked sheriff Oldham why detectives say there was no argument prior to the shooting and it appears McClain showed up, shot his stepfather and left.  "Our investigation revealed the victim was totally surprised."

Detectives say McClain was found in his home after he hadn't been heard from for two days.  "McClain lived there by himself and had been separated from his wife for a number of years."

Those who live nearby say they've been on edge ever since.  "It was nerve racking, especially when you have young kids and when it's right at your doorstep because you begin to wonder if somebody is lurking in the neighborhood."

Today some answers, some closure and a lot of sadness.

Mr. McClain was a family man as well as a coach and mentor to young men he coached most recently during his career at Ridgeway."
