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.
