JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — A 39-year-old man has been charged in the shooting death of a Missouri Southern State University football coach.

Joplin police said Saturday that the Jasper County prosecutor's office has charged Jeffery Bruner of Joplin with felony murder and armed criminal action in 37-year-old Derek Moore's death. Moore died after he was shot Friday night as he left a Joplin movie theater.

Bruner is being held without bond in Joplin. Jail officials say it's not clear if he has a lawyer.

Moore was in his first year as a Missouri Southern offensive line coach. He came to MSSU after three seasons at Western Illinois University in Macomb, Illinois.

The university canceled its Homecoming activities and said in a statement the school was "stunned and deeply saddened" by Moore's death.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Officials say the suspect in the Los Angeles International Airport shootings had a lot of ammunition as well as a note indicating a grudge against TSA agents and "pigs."

A source says the note talked about TSA searches being violations of his constitutional rights.

Officials say the gunman, identified as Paul Ciancia of Pennsville, N.J., had at least 150 rounds of ammunition when he opened fire, killing a TSA agent and wounding several people as others in the panicked terminal ran for cover. Two other TSA employees are among the wounded.

The dead man, 39-year-old Gerardo I. Hernandez, is the first TSA agent to die in the line of duty.

The gunman was shot four times by police and is in custody at a hospital.
