Police Search For Suspects In Officer Shooting

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police officers are investigating the shooting of one of their own.

Kelly McPherson has the very latest.

It happened around 9:15 p.m. Tuesday. A police officer was shot in a parking garage stairwell at Water and Frederick streets.  The parking garage is right outside city police headquarters. 

The officer, a homicide detective, was shot in the leg and has been taken to Shock Trauma with non-life threatening injuries.  Officials say his condition is stable. 

“Every type of policeman was down there,” said Maria Mercy, a witness.  “The ambulance could not get to the area [because of police cars blocking the streets.]”

The detective was not in uniform at the time of the shooting.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned man with facial hair.  He was wearing a black puffy jacket.
