INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The 29-year-old Indianapolis police officer did not survive his injuries from a shooting last weekend.

Officer David Moore was unable to recover from the multiple gunshot wounds he sustained during a traffic stop near 34th and Keystone Avenue. Moore was shot 4 times, twice directed to the face.

The grave results of the officer's MRI led Moore's family to decide to eventually take him off of life support.

Moore's family decided to donate his organs and kept him on life support until that process could be completed.

Since the shooting dozens of police officers have kept vigil at Wishard Hospital. IMPD Chief Paul Ciesielski sent out a page to every officer on the force to let them know that Moore had passed away.

The suspected gunman, 60-year-old Thomas Hardy, appeared in court Tuesday to face charges in a separate robbery case.

He has not yet been charged with shooting Officer Moore, but those could reportedly be filed this week.
