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.

    One cop down is too many. I feel for the family. This officer will live on via donation of organs, something we should all ponder (sign your cards, please).
    If anyone finds donation information, please post it here so we can contribute from Canada too.

    Rest in Peace, Ofc Moore....our thought and prayers go out to his family, friends, and colleagues.

    Such a sad era. This has been just so horrible a start to any new year for LEO's for anyone's recent memory. Everyone stay safe out there - never underestimate anyone you encounter, and always watch your six.

    Dedicated to Indianapolis Metro Police Officer David Moore,

    Chief Ciesielski said that you “exemplified what is best in policing and best in an IMPD Officer.” I think we would all like to add that the generous donation of your organs, making it possible for others to live out their lives, exemplifies what is best in humankind. Officer, you most certainly “gave your all.”

    Fallen, not forgotten
    He was a hero
    He stood so tall
    And forever, we will remember
    With honor and glory,
    He gave his all

    [With thanks to Ray Boltz, who wrote the meaningful lyrics for “Fallen Not Forgotten”]

    May God comfort your loving family, your IMPD Brothers & Sisters, your friends and all who were touched by your caring dedication to Law Enforcement at this time of incredible shock and mourning.
