On Sunday, January 26, 2020, at approximately 1:30 a.m., a Henderson police officer was traveling south on Garnett St. As the officer passed Young Street, they heard a series of gun discharges in close vicinity. As the officer traveled further, they observed individuals gathered in the roadway and on the sidewalks of the 200 block of S. Garnett Street near the intersection of Breckenridge Street.
One individual, brandishing a firearm, was observed crouching behind a vehicle parked on the left side of the roadway. The officer exited the marked patrol vehicle and began giving verbal commands. The commands were ignored and the individual continued to distance himself, entering a crowded Citizens’ Pub and Grill. The handgun the person had was soon found lying on the ground close to their encounter.
As other officers began to arrive, Dyquarium Moore (age 28) was found sitting in a vehicle suffering from a gunshot wound. Moore was treated by EMTs and transported to a local medical facility for his injuries. The arriving officers also began securing the scene and searching for evidence and witnesses.
Property damage, from projectiles, was found on three separate structures in the immediate vicinity and multiple motor vehicles parked near or about the intersection of Garnett Street and Breckenridge Street also sustained damage.
We are still actively seeking information on the incident and have already collected a substantial amount of evidence, including a second firearm. We are aware of an altercation involving female patrons inside Citizens’ Pub and are attempting to confirm or disprove if it was connected to the incident in the roadway.
We are asking that anyone with information about the incident contact us immediately. A cash reward of up to $2,000 is offered through Henderson-Vance Crime Stoppers (252) 492-1925 or P3 app. Please call us at 252-438-4141 or contact us through Facebook or Instagram.
