Shooting Suspect At Large

BROCKTON – Police report that a shooting occurred in Brockton yesterday at the home of Rayquan Wallace (22) and Latisha Retton (19). The alleged gunman, Taylor Moran (24), broke into Wallace’s apartment on Christmas Day at 8:35 PM to the surprise of Wallace, Retton, and their daughter. He brandished a handgun and neighbors report hearing a loud argument before a single gunshot. Reports indicate that Retton may have recorded portions of the incident on her smartphone, eventually surrendering this evidence to police. Officers had already been alerted to the argument and were on scene shortly after the shot was fired, which put Wallace into critical condition. Wallace was rushed by ambulance to Signature Healthcare. The hospital reports that Wallace coded while in transit to the hospital, but thanks to the work of the hospital staff and EMTs, Wallace was resuscitated. Moran fled the scenes. A reward is currently being offered by the BPD for any information regarding the location of Taylor Moran, as the suspect is at large and considered to be armed and dangerous. Police report that Moran and Retton had a prior relationship.
