MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) - The Memphis Police Department have identified a police officer and a suspect in an officer-involved shooting that happened a week ago.

Officers responded to a Quick and Easy Convenience Store on South Highland Wednesday, Jan. 24, and found three males in the parking lot who were armed with a handgun.

They were possibly talking about robbing someone.

When police rolled up to check it out, investigators said the officer noticed one of the suspects leaning on a car. 

The officer asked the suspect to show him his hands.

Instead, police said the suspect pulled a gun from the car and pointed it at the officer.

The officer then fired his weapon, shooting the suspect. The officer was not hurt.

The armed suspect was 18-year-old Bo Moore. He has been charged with aggravated assault. 

The officer was identified as 35-year-old Officer Christopher Ross. 

Ross has been relieved of duty with pay per MPD policy. 

He is currently assigned to Airways Station and has been employed with the Memphis Police Department since July 2007.
