Patrolman Edward Moore was shot and killed while arresting a robbery suspect. He had just gotten off duty and was still in uniform when he spotted the suspect. He patted him down and confiscated a .32 caliber handgun. As he was handcuffing the man, the suspect grabbed the gun and shot him in the chest several times. Patrolman Moore was able to chase the suspect for about a block before collapsing.

The suspect was arrested by other officers responding to the scene. Patrolman Moore was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries eight days later after contracting pneumonia.

Patrolman Moore had been in law enforcement for ten years. He was survived by his wife and two children.
