Off-duty deputy injured in downtown shooting

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — An off-duty sheriff's deputy was shot outside an apartment building in downtown Memphis.

Sergeant Joey Moore is a 29-year veteran of the Shelby County Sheriff's Department.

According to a family friend, Moore was working to clean up a unit at the Chisca on Main in order to sell it when he was approached by a man wearing a hoodie and bandana.

The suspect demanded money, then shot the victim once.

The deputy was rushed to the Regional Medical Center but is expected to be okay.

He was reportedly sitting up and talking when loaded into the ambulance.

WREG's Melissa Moon learned an unidentified suspect broke into two cars near the building.

It's unclear if that incident is connected to the shooting.

No arrests have been made.
