Landis woman dies after shooting accident

KANNAPOLIS — A teacher at Knollwood Elementary School in Salisbury died Saturday night after she was shot in the stomach at a restaurant in Kannapolis.

The shooting is believed to have been accidental, and the gun belonged to the victim, according to the Concord Police Department.

Madison Moore, 28, of Landis, was transported to Carolinas Medical Center Northeast, where she died of her injuries, police said.

Moore was a third-grade teacher at Knollwood Elementary.

Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education Chairman Josh Wagner called Moore’s death tragic and said the county has lost too many teachers and students during his tenure.

According to Moore’s obituary, she is survived by her husband, Craig Lee Moore, as well as a daughter. She is also survived by her parents, Brian William Gray and Michelle Renee Gray, and one brother.

Moore graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2012, the obituary says.

Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Gordon Funeral Service in Monroe. A funeral is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday at Central United Methodist Church in Monroe.

The shooting happened at Ruby Tuesday’s restaurant on Wonder Drive in Kannapolis.

Concord police are continuing to investigate.
