BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A shelter-in-place is in effect for an entire neighborhood of west Baltimore as police continue their search for a gunman who shot and killed a detective Wednesday afternoon.

This shelter-in-place means no one is allowed to come into the Harlem Park neighborhood and no one is allowed out until everything is cleared. The order even applied to a school bus, as a driver was told Thursday morning to turn around at the police perimeter.

Also Thursday morning, police were using megaphones at the scene to try and track down the shooter. Officers have been in the neighborhood since Wednesday at dusk, looking for the suspect from the air and from the ground.

The shooting happened on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. on the 900 Block of Bennett Place while the detective was investigating a murder in the neighborhood with a partner.

When he approached a suspicious man, the man opened fire, police say. The officer was shot in the head. He was then taken to Shock Trauma where he died. The officer is an 18-year veteran of the force. He is also a father of five.

There is a $69,000 reward for information that leads to the shooter’s arrest.

WJZ will have complete coverage of this story today at 4, 5, 6 and 11 p.m. Stay with us for the latest.

  1. “Anti-racists” say there’s a RACE problem. They say it’ll be solved when non-Whites pour into ALL & ONLY White nations and “assimilate” to get a brown mixture.

    They say only White nations have this RACE problem; they say non-White nations are fine.

    If I object to my own genocide these “anti-racists” say I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they’re anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

    1. Time for all minorities to have the honest conversation about the generational racism taught to them about White people. Do not tell me that blacks/Latinos have never, ever spoken one stereotype, one name like Cracker, Honkey, Strawberry, or Whitey to their own kids. I’m sick of the whites only being blamed as “racists” when I just resigned from a job at America’s #4 Home Improvement Retailer, where the biggest racists were a two black men, and three Latinos. All Anti-White racists – let’s have that conversation.

      1. Che Pajogwin says:

        People cannot be “racist”. Only institutions can actually be racist, and we have many of those in the US. The US was built on racism!

        People can be bigoted, and all people are biased in some way.

    2. james george says:

      It is bull. Blacks do not care what is right.Blacks and other minorities want a free ride on the backs of working people.End of story.

  2. Dave Allen says:

    Well at least the perp didn’t get shot.
    No news here, lets move on.

    1. See what happens when you don’t get tough with criminals they think killing the police is OK.
      True fact people…Start building prisons and keep them in there where they belong!

      1. You need to get tarred and feathered and thrown to satisfy the brothers’ booty call.

  3. The problem is not with racism. The problem is those slave ships they let dock at the ports hundreds of years ago. That’s the problem. It has been bad ever since.

    1. America wasn’t even the United States at the time the slaves arrived here. It was still controlled by England. It was only when the the United States started to push back against slavery that things started to change quickly bringing us the Civil War. but throughout our early history the writing was on the wall, slavery would end.

      1. If ignorance is bliss, you must be the happiest person on the planet.

  4. Another democRat town, right?

  6. Níggers are incompatible with white civilization. Return the savages back to the jungle, and stop feeding them. There is no alternative.

    1. You should be publicly flogged by whites and blacks for being a pos.

  7. Jeffrey Gee says:

    On a cold and gray Chicago mornin’
    A poor little baby child is born
    In the ghetto (in the ghetto)…

    Oh wait, this is an entirely different democrat controlled hell hole…. Baltimore!

  8. Hank Plitt says:

    Time to elect another democrat! When will you do the math?!?

  9. Anti-racists say there is a RACE problem that can only be solved when the third world pours into EVERY White country and “assimilates.”

    What if I said there was a RACE problem that could only be solved if hundreds of millions of non-Blacks were brought into EVERY Black country? How long before people realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem, but the conclusion to the BLACK problem?

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  10. I don’t know how they get the police to even work in this city. I’m surprised the cops haven’t staged a walkout in Baltimore.

  11. IF $69K did not create a ghetto lottery winner in 5 minutes in a “neighborhood” with a murder rate 70X the national average , it means the guy ain’t there.

  12. Tell me again how white cops are the problem? Tell me again that the NRA is the problem?

    WHEN will the black community stop making excuses and start looking at themselves as the root of the issue? No where in Europe is this cry of “racism” even a talking point!

  13. The shooter must have heard from the trayvon case that you’re allowed and justified to violently attack anyone who comes up to you to ask you a question. That’s racism.
