PORTLAND -- Seventeen year old Billy Moore was shot in the back and died after an argument on a TriMet bus. It all happened late Monday in the Portsmouth area ofAllNorth Portland.

Billy Moore had just left his mother's bedside at Oregon Health and Science University where she was about to be taken off life-support.  Then, Moore boarded a TriMet bus and got into an argument with some other passengers before reaching his stop. 

Billy got off the bus near his home and one of the boys he had been arguing with shot him in the back. He then crawled home and died at his doorstep.

Billy Moore had just graduated from high school and friends said he was getting his life together. His mother had been suffering from Leukemia and died in the hospital shortly after Billy's visit.

Police arrested a 16-year-old suspect but his name was not released because of his age.
