A 25-year-old New York City police officer died Monday, two days after being shot in the face in Queens. Officer Brian Moore was taken off life support yesterday.
NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton praised Moore’s five year career, saying he had made 150 arrests and had been awarded several commendations. Moore’s alleged killer is being held without bail. Charges against Demitrius Blackwell will now be updated to murder.
The gun believed to have been used in the shooting was found in a backyard near the shooting scene in Queens yesterday.
