IMPD Chief Paul Ciesielski announced Tuesday that Officer Moore would not survive injuries he sustained when he was shot Sunday morning.The 29-year-old suffered multiple gunshot wounds during a traffic stop near 34th and Keystone Avenue.
The grave results of the officer's MRI led Moore's family to decide to eventually take him off of life support, although Moore passed away peacefully early Wednesday before that happened.
David Moore joined IMPD in 2004, following in the footsteps of his parents, both career officers.
Moore was Rookie Officer of the Year in 2005. Four years later he received the Medal of Valor for the courage shown in a life-threatening confrontation. In November 2008, Moore shot and killed a man who aimed a gun at him and fellow officers.
