BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The officer who fired his weapon at a suspect vehicle while investigating a shooting last Saturday has been identified Wednesday, police reveal.
Sergeant David Colburn has been a member of the Baltimore Police Department since 2008 and is currently assigned to the Patrol Division.
Officers were on a narcotics call in Gilmor Homes on Saturday at around 7:30 p.m. when they heard gunfire and ran toward it.
They found an 18-year-old man shot inside a car.
As the suspects fled in a vehicle, Sergeant Colburn fired at it. Officials said they don’t believe they struck anyone, although another officer watched that same car drop off a man with cuts to his face from broken glass.
Sergeant Colburn has no prior officer involved shootings.
At this time, investigators have not been able to locate any shooting victims.
