Baltimore police detective shot in the head dies

19 November 2017

Sean Suiter was shot in the head Wednesday night and died Thursday at Baltimore Shock Trauma.

"We will find the person responsible for this ridiculous, unnecessary, absurd loss of life", Davis said. He was dressed from head to toe, like every other homicide detective in Baltimore is dressed: full suit, tie, badge displayed on his waistband.

Officials say Suiter was a Washington, D.C, native who lived with his family in York, Pennsylvania, about an hour's commute from Baltimore.

An autopsy has not been completed for Sean Suiter, an 18-year veteran of the department, the commissioner said. The FBI is offering a $69,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the unnamed suspect, who police described as a black man in a black jacket with white stripes on the sleeves, according to Police Commissioner Kevin Davis.

Davis said the officer was "just doing his job" when he was ambushed and vowed to have the shooter captured.

The federal government has announced it is working with the United Kingdom on a global alliance to give the fossil fuel the boot. Coal is responsible for more than 40 per cent of global emissions of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.

Police cordoned off streets in the West Baltimore area and a tactical unit combed alleyways searching for a shooter.

"We remain dedicated and committed to finding the person who ended such a lovely life, such a wonderful detective, husband, father and friend", the police commissioner said.

The violence comes as Baltimore has been rocked by homicides - more than 300 so far this year.

Mayor Catherine Pugh called for a halt to the violence - a frequently repeated refrain in Baltimore.

Davis also said, "I tell officers what do you think Detective Suiter would want you to do about this?" "Sixty-nine thousand dollars is the reward that is being offered to anyone with information that can help us solve this case. This kind of violence can not be tolerated", she said.
