A riverside man claims self-defense in a shooting and stabbing (kicking, slapping, spiting, cursing and calling his mother a bad name) of 55-year-old Bruce R. Molony. They booked Don A. Moore, 65, on suspicion of first-degree murder. Moore told detctives that Molony was house sitting for him and he noticed that several things came up missing but when he seen that a clutch from one of his trucks was missing he went to confront Molony.
Moore admitted he pulled a gun but Molony pulled a knife and stabbed him and that is when “I emptied my gun in him, and then I stabbed him.” He added, “It was brutal. There was blood everywhere.”
Detectives believe he was trying to leave the scene, but drove off the edge of the steep driveway and down a bank before going back to the scene and calling police.
