Police Officer Moses Walker was shot and killed while attempting to take police action while off duty shortly before 6:00 am.

He had just finished his shift at the 22nd district station and was walking to a bus stop after changing into civilian clothes. He was at the intersection of North 20th Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue when two men started following him in a suspicious manner. He attempted to take evasive action to avoid an encounter but the men caught him and announced a robbery.

As he drew his weapon to take action against the men he was shot in the chest, stomach, and arm. The entire incident was captured on several surveillance systems.

Both subjects were arrested within several days.

Officer Walker had served with the Philadelphia Police Department for 19 years. He is survived by his five siblings.

By William Butler Yeats
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.

never forgotten
