Sergeant Floyd Moore was shot and killed with his own weapon after surprising a burglar at an apartment complex. He obtained the suspect's identification and placed it in his breast pocket. He then instructed the suspect to follow him. As Sergeant Moore turned around the suspect grabbed his revolver and opened fire. The suspect was later identified by the identification card Sergeant Moore had taken from him.

The suspect was convicted and sentenced to death, however, the sentence was later commuted to life imprisonment.

Sergeant Moore had served with the agency for seven years.
