WINSTON-SALEM - The man accused of killing a Winston-Salem State University student during a homecoming weekend shooting had his first date in Forsyth District Court on the charges.

Jarrett Jerome Moore had been transported from Mecklenburg County, where he had been picked up on other charges.

The 21-year-old Moore was brought into court wearing handcuffs and shackles speaking quietly with his head bowed when asked questions.

Moore was told he faced a murder charge for the shooting of 19-year-old Anthony White and also a charge of discharging a firearm on educational property.

Assistant DA Jennifer Martin said that Moore could face the death penalty or life in prison if convicted.

She also told the court Moore had prior charges of disorderly conduct, resisting an officer, assault and possession of marijuana.

Moore was charged in Mecklenburg County with assault with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm into a home.

He'd been scheduled to appear in Charlotte Tuesday on those charges, but had been transported to Forsyth County.

Moore said he had an attorney in Mecklenburg County, but Judge Denise Hartsfield appointed him an attorney, saying she want to make sure he was represented here on these charges.

No bond was allowed, Moore is being held in the Forsyth County Jail.
