He was shot dead by Detroit officials on March 1. The shooting took place after the Cincinnati police contacted DPD and informed them that Moore had fled into town and was at the Rivertown Inn and Suites.

Detroit officials planned to approach Moore when he left the hotel around 9:50 a.m. that day. Police said when Moore saw officers he made his way to a parked vehicle and then opened fire on them.


Detroit police chief James Craig said officers shot back at Moore, who had been beaten multiple times.

Moore was in critical condition immediately after the exchange of fire. The police recovered three handguns, one semi-automatic weapon and two revolvers.

When he was shot dead by Detroit officers, Moore was on an active warrant for murder and aggravated assault.
