(WMC-TV) - The Memphis police officer who shot an 18-year-old during what was reported as a robbery threat returned to duty and will not be charged.

According to MPD, a call came in to police that three men were in a parking lot and one was armed with a gun. The man said he overheard them talking about robbing someone.

Officer Christopher Ross, 35, responded and saw a man leaning into a car. He gave verbal commands to the man, identified as 18-year-old Bo Moore. That is when Moore reportedly pulled a gun out of the vehicle and pointed it at Officer Ross.

Ross shot Moore, who was taken to The MED in critical condition. He was later upgraded to non-critical condition.

Ross was relived of duty pending an investigation into the shooting. He has since returned to work at Airways Station.

Moore is charged with aggravated assault.
