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.
