Philly Cop shot dead after shift, waiting for bus at 20th and Columbia a $118,000 reward has been posted. On August 18, 2012, just before 6am, Police Officer Moses Walker Jr. was shot and killed. Officer Walker was walking in the 2000 block of Cecil B. Moore Avenue where two males approached him. Officer Walker was shot several times and the suspects fled the scene in an unknown direction. Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to contact the Philadelphia Police Department.

The four-minute video shows Walker looking over his shoulder several times as he walks along a streetlight-illuminated sidewalk, followed by grainy footage of two men walking behind him, first on the opposite side of the street and then crossing over. Out of the camera’s view further down the block, the 19-year police department veteran was shot.

Capt. James Clark, head of the homicide unit replied,

He looked like a young civilian walking down the street, and we think that’s why he was targeted,

Witness to shooting describes the scene remarked,

Two males approached (Walker), one of which had a gun, a robbery was announced and he demanded money,” Clark said. “During this time, the officer attempted to pull out his off-duty weapon … one of the males fired, striking him three times: once in the chest, once in the stomach and once in the hand.”
