It’s unfortunately another sad day for NYPD. Today (May 4), Officer Brian Moore died after being shot in the head two days ago while on patrol in Queens, NY. 

Reports the New York Post:

A grim-faced Police Commissioner Bill Bratton was seen entering the hospital around 12:30 p.m. Moore’s parents were at their son’s bedside.

The officer’s father, Raymond, is a retired cop.

“He is devastated,” a source told The Post.

Moore, 25, was gunned down by a violent ex-con after the officer and his partner stopped the man as he suspiciously fiddled with an object in his waistband on a Queens street Saturday evening, authorities said.

“Do you have something in your waist?’’ Moore asked Demetrius Blackwell, 35, while sitting behind the wheel of the cops’ unmarked car, sources said.

“Yeah, I got something,” Blackwell, 35, snarled back.

Authorities are now preparing to upgrade the attempted-murder rap against Blackwell to murder, sources said.

We can never condone violence against any cop performing his duties.

Be prepared for a storm of opportunist who will turn this unfortunate incident into political ammunition, though.

Rest in peace Brian Moore.
