Suspect, victim in widely shared child porn video identified

Officials say the video depicts a young girl being victimized by an adult man. Authorities have asked people to stop sharing the video online, saying anyone who shares the video is technically distributing child porn.

Germaine Moore, 44, faces eleven felony charges, several charges pending in Alabama and active warrants in Detroit.

Police said the victim has been located and is safe.
