INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis police chief says he’s optimistic that an officer shot twice in the face will survive.

Officer David Moore remained hospitalized Monday, a day after he was shot after authorities say he stopped a car on the city’s northeast side.

Chief Paul Ciesielski tells WTHR-TV that he’s “100 percent confident” that a 60-year-old man arrested Sunday evening was the gunman. That man was jailed on robbery and habitual offender charges, but Ciesielski said he expected shooting charges to be filed in the coming days.

Moore was in the intensive care unit at Wishard Memorial Hospital. Doctors say two bullets hit Moore in the face and just missed his spinal cord. He also was shot in the thigh and had a bullet stopped by his protective vest.

    Prayers for our brothers recovery. The waste of DNA that shot him should in turn be taken out and shiot. I know that isn't within the rules of sente4ncing but it is what he deserves. Hope he gets life anyway for attempted murder.
