My hopes for a speedy and full recovery to Officer Moore. I love Idaho, it's a beautiful and very hospitable state. I hope the guy gets maximum sentence for his actions. I'd wish him to rot in Hell if I believed it existed.

There is no such info for OP at this time according to the Idaho news website. Did you want Quantum to create something to appease?

Seems as if he may have been a "run of the mill" bad guy...
He was on parole. There seems to have been some time since his last offense.
I bet it turns out that drug addiction is at the root of his evil.

Blessings for the officers family!

I had a dear friend die there a few years ago in a traffic accident on a winding road...beautiful country though...

13 offenses in 10 years. I imagine he did much more crime then he was ever caught doing.

After this, I suspect his days of freedom are gone for a long, long time.

Very sad time here in North Idaho, this was an officer who truly loved his community.

Very sorry for his family! This is the sort of thing cops face that makes their jobs harder. They never know if the guy they pulled over for a busted light will try and kill them. I hope they have all the evidence they need to convict the shooter.

Sergeant Greg Moore was shot and killed after stopping a suspicious male.

Sergeant Moore was patrolling in the area of Wilbur Avenue and Joanna Drive in response to a several car burglaries that had taken place in the area.

A citizen heard gunshots, found Sergeant Moore in the street and called the police.

After the shooting, the suspect stole Sergeant Moore's patrol car and fled the location. An officer spotted the stolen patrol car in the town of Post Fall, and gave pursuit. The suspect eventually fled on foot, and was eventually found in a parking lot, hiding under a car, and taken into custody.

Sergeant Moore was taken to a local hospital, where he died several hours later from his wounds.

Sergeant Moore had served with the Coeur d'Alene Police Department for 14 years and is survived by his wife and two children.
