The Post reports that Moore’s family took him off life support on Monday morning, and that NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton was seen entering the hospital around 12:30 p.m. Moore was 25.
Moore was shot in the left cheek on Saturday evening by 35-year-old Demetrius Blackwell, who was arrested and charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon. The Queens district attorney upgraded that last charge to first-degree murder after news of Moore’s death emerged.
Blackwell is a former convict who previously served five years in prison on an attempted murder charge. He was released in 2005, then spent 2007–2008 in prison for violating parole.
