Baltimore police continue their search for a man suspected of fatally shooting a detective last week.

Police Commissioner Kevin Davis revealed veteran homicide detective Sean Suiter was shot with his own gun. He also said body camera video from the incident shows evidence of a struggle just before the fatal shot was fired.

The incident came just one day before Suiter was to testify in an FBI investigation. But authorities say the detective was not intentionally targeted.

“Detective Suiter was going to offer federal grand jury testimony about an incident that occurred several years ago that included officers who are now federally indicted back in March,” Commissioner Davis said. “”The special agent in charge ofthe FBI’s Baltimore field office has told me in no uncertain terms, that Detective Suiter was not the target of any ongoing criminal investigation.”The special agent in charge of the FBI’s Baltimore field office has told me in no uncertain terms, that Detective Suiter was not the target of any ongoing criminal investigation.”

The combined reward for information leading to an arrest currently stands at $215,000.

Suiter is survived by his wife and five children. A funeral is set for next week

    How about marching the National Guard into Baltimore going through every neighborhood flushing out and shooting every criminal that runs out of those dwellings like the Soviet Army did to Berlin Germany and the Nazi’s at the end of WW2.
    Might not be to popular but sure would rid the city of the Hood RATS.

    I use to do business near Baltimore. Back then it was indeed “Charm City”. Always enjoyed going to the inner Harbor for dinner. Not anymore. Now you are a target of opportunity if are anywhere near it. Shameful what Baltimore has become.
