NYPD officer shot in head by black man dies

The NYPD officer who was shot in the head while sitting in an unmarked patrol car in Queens over the weekend has died and charges against the suspect in his slaying have been upgraded to first-degree murder.

Officer Brian Moore, 25, died Monday afternoon after being taken off life support at Jamaica Hospital two days after the shooting in Queens Village. Moore had been put in a medically induced coma and had  surgeries for “severe injuries to his skull and brain.”

The son of a cop from a family with deep NYPD ties, Moore proved himself an exceptional officer since joining the force in 2010, making 150 arrests and winning four medals for his police work, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said.

“It’s a great loss to his family, a great loss to the department and a great loss to his profession and his city,” Bratton said.
