Two days before Deandre Moon was born in 1994, his father was paralyzed in a shootout with state drug agents. Friends said Wednesday the younger Moon used his father’s experience as motivation to make a better life for himself, hoping to turn his prowess on the high school football field into a professional career. “He was looking forward to seeing his dad (also Deandre Moon) out of state prison someday so he could raise (his son),” said Alyjah Elmore, 17, a close friend of the younger Moon and fellow Rochester Area High School football player. Moon, 18, of Rochester was shot in the groin on a houseboat moored at the New Brighton Marina on the Beaver River in New Brighton early Wednesday and bled to death after friends rushed him to the hospital. New Brighton Area police Chief Charles Van Fossan said police believe a fight broke out on the houseboat just before 2:30 a.m. Police were interviewing the owner of the houseboat, David Mooney, 19, of New Brighton, on Wednesday evening. There were no charges filed as of Wednesday night. View Source.
