FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — The FBI has identified the man who was shot and killed by U.S. marshals in Arkansas as they tried to arrest him on an attempted murder warrant.
Connor Hagan, a spokesman for the FBI office in Little Rock, confirmed 36-year-old Ryan E. Moore’s identity on Wednesday.
Moore had a warrant for his arrest in connection with the May 19 shooting of a woman in Hindsville. His warrant for attempted capital murder was issued on May 29.
The U.S. Marshals Service located him Monday night driving a black Mazda in a northwest Arkansas parking lot.
The marshals ordered Moore to turn off his vehicle and step out of the car. When he refused, shots were fired, according to the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. Moore died at a hospital.
Hagan said the FBI is further investigating the shooting.
