Man arrested, charged after Norfolk officer shot on Vincent Avenue

Ali A. Moore, 20, was taken into custody and is being held without bond at Norfolk City Jail.

NORFOLK, Va. — UPDATE: A man has been arrested in connection to this shooting. Ali A. Moore, 20 is charged with aggravated malicious wounding, two counts of attempted aggravated malicious wounding and three counts of use of a firearm.

Moore was taken into custody on September 1 and is being held without bond at Norfolk City Jail. 

A Norfolk police officer was shot near Ballentine Boulevard Wednesday night.

According to the Norfolk Police Department, officers were called to the 2700 block of Vincent Avenue around 9:30 p.m. That's in the Ballentine Place neighborhood of the city.

The department says the officers saw two cars stopped in the road, and they were trying to figure out why they were parked like that when a man near the cars started shooting at them.

One of the officers was hurt in that shooting, but is expected to be okay.

The two police officers "immediately" fired back, and the suspects ran from the cars. 

A police department spokesperson said officers chased down one of the suspects and arrested that person. The suspect wasn't hurt.

After the exchange of gunfire, someone tipped off the officers about a gunshot victim near the scene. They found a man who was hurt, and medics took him to a hospital. He's expected to be okay.

The officer who was hurt was also taken to the hospital, and was being treated Thursday morning.

13News Now confirmed with the Norfolk Commonwealth Attorney's Office that state police are now investigating this shooting. 

Thursday morning, around 6:30 a.m., a search warrant was issued for a home on Vincent Avenue. There aren't many details available about that warrant, yet.

A neighbor shared video with 13News Now of the events they saw unfold shortly after the shooting. It shows a police officer walking a person in front of him, with the person's arms behind their back:
