Nicholas Wayne Moore, the man from Guam arrested by the US Marshals Task Force and the Bay County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, is not just accused of murdering Michael Castro, there is also another warrant for him accusing him of attempted murder.

In a joint news conference held by the Attorney General’s Office and the Guam Police Department, both AG Leevin Camacho and GPD Chief Stephen Ignacio wouldn’t disclose the identity of the victim in the alleged attempted murder.

They did confirm, however, that the case is separate and distinct from the Michael Castro murder charge.

“We also believe that Nicholas Moore was involved in another incident, which involves the attempted murder of an individual in the central area, again, because there’s a connection between Nicholas Moore in two cases, we don’t want to comment beyond that. But yes we can confirm that there is a second case of interest, involving Nicholas Moore,” Ignacio said.

When asked who the victim was in the attempted murder as well as when and where it happened, Ignacio said he can’t comment.

When asked whether the attempted murder case was related to a drive-by shooting that occurred in October, Ignacio also said he can’t comment.

“No, we’re not going to confirm anything at this point. But we’ll get back to you,” the GPD chief said.
