Off-duty Corrections officer allegedly involved in shooting

Police reported a shooting in Brooklyn this afternoon around 1:08 p.m. at Clarendon Road and Utica Avenue in Brooklyn.

Cops responded to a 911 call of shots fired, and found a black male, 34, shot twice in the chest. The suspected shooter, a 32-year-old black male, was also found on the scene and apprehended by law enforcement.

The victim was transported to Kings County Hospital, alive but in critical condition. No other injuries were reported, according to the NYPD, and there is an on-going investigation.

The shooter was an off-duty Department of Corrections officer, according to the New York Times, which identify him as Dale Moore.

The Department of Corrections did not confirm that he was the shooter, but they did verify that he was involved in the shooting, along with another Corrections officer, Captain Shalonda Smith, who was also off-duty. Smith has been with the Department of Corrections since 2004, and Moore joined in 2008. They both work at Rikers Island.
