Real Name: Lyle Vorina Moody
Aliases: Lyle McDonald, Jerry Hawkins, and Lyle Rashad
Wanted For: Attempted Murder
Missing Since: August 18, 1984
Details: On the night of August 18, 1984, police officers Vic Webb and Rick Foley received a tip that a woman wanted for fraud frequented a local pool hall called Gary's Game Room. At 10:25pm, the two officers arrived at the hall, and as they searched the bar and went down a hallway in the back of the pool hall, a black male came at them with a gun, and ordered them to drop their weapons. Then, the man began firing at the officers, and they drew their weapons as a gunfight ensued while the officers tried to exit the bar. Although he was wearing a flak jacket, Officer Webb was hit twice, and the second bullet ripped his right arm, severing an artery, destroying nerves, and leaving his shooting hand useless. Webb managed to make his way out of the bar where his partner Officer Foley was already radioing for assistance. Only later did they realize that the suspect had picked up Webb's gun, which helped him make his escape unharmed. The assailant was later identified as Lyle Moody, a paroled armed robber with a criminal record stretching back more than seventeen years. He is wanted for attempted murder and is still at large.
