NEW YORK (PIX11/CNN) — The Georgia pawn shop where the gun linked to the murder of NYPD Officer Brian Moore was stolen from in 2011 has released video of the robbery.
The gun cops say suspect Demetrius Blackwell used to shoot Moore as he sat in his patrol car in Queens Village Saturday was recovered Monday in a backyard. NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said the weapon — a Taurus Model 85 5-shot revolver — was one of 11 guns stolen from Little’s Bait and Tackle Pawn Shop in Perry.
Ten of those guns have been recovered in the years since — nine of them in New York.
No arrests have been made in the robbery of the pawn shop, officials say.
Officer Moore and his partner Erik Jansen were driving in an unmarked car when they saw the suspect adjusting something in his waistband. Blackwell allegedly pulled a gun from his waistband and opened fire on both officers, who were in the car and had no chance to fire back.
Blackwell — who has a long rap sheet, starting when he was just 15 years old — has been charged with first-degree murder.
