Lamar Moore, 26, being sought as a suspect in Little Rock robberies in which he impersonated a police officer to gain entry to homes, shot himself after officers tried to arrest him in England Thursday evening, the State Police said.

A State Police release said U.S. marshals, England and Little Rock police and Community Correction officers found Moore at 218 N. Washington in England.

Initial reports to Special Agents of the State Police Criminal Investigation Division indicate Moore approached the task force with a gun to his head, lowered the gun, and then pointed it at a task force officer. At least one task force member fired at Moore causing Moore to retreat to a room inside the house.

Officers reported to State Police that following the initial encounter with Moore a shot was heard inside the house. A preliminary investigation indicates Moore shot himself.

Moore was transported to a North Little Rock hospital where he remains.

On July 18, Moore allegedly forced his way into homes on Twin Lakes Drive and Maryland Avenue after showing occupants a badge and a gun in a holster.
