Patrolman Edward J. Moore Jr. was shot and killed on Jan. 15, while arresting a robbery suspect. He had just gotten off duty and was still in uniform when he spotted the suspect. He patted him down and confiscated a .32 caliber handgun.
As he was handcuffing the man, the suspect grabbed the gun and shot him in the chest several times.
Moore was able to chase the suspect for about a block before collapsing. Other officers responding to the scene arrested the suspect. Moore was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries eight days later after contracting pneumonia.
Moore had been in law enforcement for 10 years.
His wife and two children survived him.
