NORFOLK, Va. - A retired Norfolk Police sergeant was shot and killed, and his daughter was injured Monday night in Ocean View.

Now, his daughter, Karen Sprinkle, is speaking out after the heartbreaking incident.

She said her sister, Connie Hubbard, was the woman shot in the incident and said Hubbard was in surgery. As of Monday, News 3 was told she is awake and alert, moved from ICU to a step down room.

When talking about her dad, 83-year-old William I. Moore, Sprinkle said, “Everyone knew him; everyone loved him. This is cruel - the way they shot him like a freaking animal."

Sprinkle explained that her father was “in there minding his business. He was sleeping in the recliner, he opened the door and they [the suspects] filled him full of bullet holes. My sister opened the door; they shot her twice.”

Workers at the TASTE restaurant in Norfolk have rallied around Hubbard, saying she is a "longtime team member" at the restaurant.

"She is near and dear to us, and we are still awaiting for more news ourselves from the family," TASTE's director of operations said.

Her sister told News 3 Hubbard is getting facial reconstruction surgery and that she has a crushed face with spinal fluid leaking into her brain.

“We will never comprehend this. I wanna sit on my dad's front porch and just have peace and quiet," Sprinkle said.
