Attorney General Steve Marshall Statement on Killing of Selma Police Officer Marquis Moorer

(MONTGOMERY) – Attorney General Steve Marshall issued the following statement this morning regarding the death of Selma Police Officer Marquis Moorer in the line of duty:

“Once again, one of Alabama’s law enforcement heroes has been tragically struck down. Early this morning, Officer Marquis Moorer was on duty with the Selma Police Department and had stopped by his home for a lunch break when shots were fired from outside. Officer Moorer was killed, and another person
inside the residence at Selma Square Apartments was injured and has been hospitalized.

“Every day, officers routinely risk their lives simply by putting on their uniforms and performing their duties to protect their fellow citizens. We must honor them and never take for granted the sacrifices they make on our behalf. I ask you to join me in prayerful gratitude for Officer Moorer as we hold his loved
ones in our hearts”.
