A street in Queens Village will be named after slain Officer Brian Moore.

Queens Village street will be renamed to honor Det. Brian Moore, who was shot and killed this May while on plainclothes patrol.

Moore, who was an officer in the 105th Precinct, was in an unmarked police cruiser on the night of May 2 when he stopped Demetrius Blackwell for acting suspiciously. Blackwell allegedly motioned to his waist as if concealing a firearm. When Moore pulled up to Blackwell, he was shot in the head and face and later died from his injuries; he was posthumously promoted to first-grade detective.

City Councilman I. Daneek Miller sponsored legislation that the City Council passed unanimously last Thursday co-naming the intersection of 222nd Street and 92nd Road as Detective First Grade Brian Moore Way.

“There is consensus within the community that we want to honor those who serve and protect. Detective First Grade Brian Moore was a bright young man and a member of the elite Anti-Crime Unit; he received medals for Excellent Police Duty and Meritorious Police Duty,” Miller said. “Detective Moore’s untimely death shook both our city and our nation. To memorialize his dedication, service and life, we resolve to co-name Detective First Grade Brian Moore Way.”

Moore, 25, made 159 arrests during his time on the force. Thousands of officers from around the country and Canada attended Moore’s funeral on Long Island at St. James Roman Catholic Church in Seaford on May 8.

“It’s not many of us who can say we lived out a dream. But Brian could. He dreamed of being a cop,” Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said during the funeral. “He had an eye for the street…not even five years on, but he was already in anti-crime, already decorated…we need more like him.”
