Officer Alvin Moore was shot and killed by a juvenile while attempting to talk him into surrendering.

He had responded to a call of the armed juvenile creating a disturbance. The shooting occurred after he and his partner evacuated the house of civilians and Officer Moore attempted to talk to the boy. The suspect was shot and killed by tactical officers when he lunged at them with a knife.

Officer Moore was a U.S Army veteran of the Vietnam war and had served with the Dallas Police Department for almost three years. He was survived by his wife.

Al, I just wanted you to know that yesterday, on National Police Memorial Day, I wore my new Dallas PD commemorative badge with your name, badge number, and EOW date engraved, to honor your memory. We were the same age at the time of your death, and you were the first Dallas officer killed in the line of duty after my appointment seven months earlier on 1 April 1976. Thank you for your selfless service to our city.

Lieutenant Kenneth E. Seguin, #3813
