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.

    R.I.P brother Moore! God Bless his family and the men and women of the Indianapolis PD. As we reflect on all who have died this month and in LE all together, let us remember that "It is not how these officers died that made them heroes; it is how they lived" (National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, Washington, DC). Lets be safe out there my fellow brothers & sisters. And lets start getting them before they get us!!!!!

    What a very sad outcome. May this Officer finally be able to rest in peace and may God watch over his family and friends. They need to know that Officer David Moore will never be forgotten.
