IMPD Officer Dies of Injuries Suffered in Shooting

INDIANAPOLIS – An Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer wounded in a shooting last weekend died this morning of his injuries.

David Moore, 29, was pronounced dead about 6:30 a.m. at Wishard Memorial Hospital, said Public Safety Director Frank Straub.

Moore’s family had announced Tuesday night that they would remove him from life support as soon as donor recipients could be found for his organs.

An American flag and a city of Indianapolis flag were flown at half-staff outside the City-County Building near the Washington Street entrance.

Moore, an IMPD patrol officer since 2004, was shot four times — twice in the face — during a traffic stop on Sunday morning on the Near Northside, near 34th Street and North Temple Avenue. He had been in a coma in the intensive care unit since then. Moore also was shot in the hip; a fourth bullet to his chest was stopped by his protective vest.

A brain scan conducted Tuesday revealed that he had lost most brain function.

Police Chief Paul Ciesielski was preparing a formal statement.

Police Chief Paul Ciesielski said a medical scan this morning revealed that Moore will not survive his considerable injuries.

    RIP
    When I am dead, my dearest,
    Sing no sad songs for me;
    Plant thou no roses at my head,
    Nor shady cypress tree:
    Be the green grass above me
    With showers and dewdrops wet;
    And if thou wilt, remember,
    And if thou wilt, forget.
    I shall not see the shadows,
    I shall not feel the rain;
    I shall not hear the nightingale
    Sing on, as if in pain:
    And dreaming through the twilight
    That doth not rise nor set,
    Haply I may remember,
    And haply may forget.

    I also agree with ECPD9. Officer Moore's parents are also LEO with IMPD. My heart goes out to this family of heroes. RIP Officer Moore. Thank you for your service as an officer and to your parents for donating your organs. You will be missed.
