(Newser) – An Arizona teenager who illegally sold a gun to a man barred from owning firearms ended up getting shot dead with it during what police believe was an argument over another gun. Police say Tyrone Moore, 24, killed 18-year-old Elijah Williams in Glendale with a gun he had recently bought from the teen for $150, the Arizona Republic reports. Moore was prohibited from owning weapons because he is on parole in California.

Investigators believe that Williams and another 18-year-old, Moore's cousin Hailes Cole, were arguing about a gun stolen in a burglary when Williams pulled a gun and shot and injured Cole before being fatally shot by Moore. Moore has been charged with misconduct involving weapons, and police say more charges are pending, Your West Valley reports.
