The attorneys for the family of a man killed in a shooting at a Columbia Waffle House last year wants documents from those accused in his death.
Police said security guard Robert Moses responded to a fight inside the restaurant on Vandiver Drive on Jan.1, 2018. Moses shot Anthony Warren when he feared for his safety from an encroaching crowd of people in the store.
Warren’s family filed a wrongful death lawsuit less than two weeks after the incident. This week, attorneys for the family filed a motion to compel for documents from Signal 88 and Moses.
The motion seeks documents including:
Moses’ personnel file, including training certificates, background checks,etc. Signal 88 safety and training materials Documents related to requirements for Signal 88 security guards to carry a gun Documents of security incidents involving Signal 88 security guards Index of policies and procedures maintained by Signal 88 Incident reports from Signal 88 related to the Waffle House on Vandiver Drive Documents related to Signal 88’s hiring and retention of security guards Safety and training materials provided to Moses by Signal 88 Documents related to firearms training or testing Moses has completed
The filing said Signal 88 and Moses have been resistant to discovery requests.
ABC 17 News discovered that Moses had failed a firearms test numerous times before obtaining his armed security guard license from the city.
Criminal charges have not been filed against Moses, but the Boone County prosecutor is currently reviewing the case. Matthew McMillan faces a felony murder charge for his role in Warren’s death. Columbia police claim McMillan shot a man in the foot inside the store during a fight over a gun McMillan brought.
