Is it possible to shoot prior to moving?
Yes it is. But depending on the type of weapon, moving may have some consequences when you try to shoot.
Page 28 and 29 in the rule book should help you out.
For some reason I can't edit that above post. It is 100% wrong as I misread your question. Here is my actual answer:
No. Not unless the unit has a special rule.
Tai crisis suits for instance, but they still have to follow the same order of turn phases (move, shoot, assault). They are just allowed to move in the assault phase.
Well, Captain Al'Rahem of the Imperial Guard can issue an order in the shooting phase that makes a unit shoot and then run in the same turn but it still doesn't override the phase order.
"The sergeant major asked me what my job is. I told him it's to do what I am told. He gave me a medal. I like the Imperial Guard."

thanks guys. It seems like a weird rule, I don't know why you wouldn't be able to shoot and then retreat, but I suppose it's another wacky rule that reminds you you're playing a game..
