A teenager has been charged as an adult in a Waverley park stabbing

LINCOLN, Neb. (COLOGNE) – A Waverly teenager has been charged as an adult with four felonies after authorities say he stabbed a 15-year-old multiple times at a park last week.

Shane Moore, who turned 15 on Monday, is charged with attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault and two counts of using a deadly weapon to commit a felony. Moore’s bond is set at 10 percent of $1 million.

According to court documents, Moore called 911 on Thursday to “report a homicide.” Deputies with the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office and the Nebraska State Patrol responded to Wayne Park in Waverly and found a 15-year-old boy with multiple stab wounds, including a heart attack. He was taken to Bryan West County with non-life threatening injuries. He was in critical condition after surgery as of Friday afternoon.

Investigators found a 3-3.5-inch knife at the scene. Blood on Moore’s clothing matched the victim’s, court documents show.

The suspect in the Lancaster youth spotlight is in custody.

Both students attended Waverly High School and were out on fall break when the incident happened, LSO said. According to the sheriff’s office, the suspect moved to Waverly from Colorado in September.
