Indianapolis Officer Shot By Felon Fights for Life
January 23, 2011
An Indianapolis Metro Police officer shot twice in the face during a Sunday morning traffic stop remained in a coma in critical condition, as police arrested the man suspected in the shooting.
Officer David Moore, who joined the department in 2004, was shot four times during the 9 a.m. traffic stop, reports the Indianapolis Star.
Officers later arrested Thomas Hardy, a 60-year-old felon suspected of shooting Moore on his way to allegedly robbing a 99 Cent store at gunpoint.
"When these things happen, we are sending a statement: You cannot shoot an IMPD officer and think you can get away with it," said police Chief Paul Ciesielski.

In the Name of Jesus we claim healing and health for this servant. I ask for an improvement into his life circumstances. May You oh God visit this officer and You do a work in his life as he lays wounded in the line of duty. May Your Presence permeate this room and may You help a friend in need!
