BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore Police Sergeant Isaac Carrington is in critical but stable condition after he was shot Thursday afternoon outside of his home.
The Baltimore City FOP tweeted Saturday that Sergeant Carrington has been responding to medical staff requests to squeeze their hands.
Sergeant Carrington went into surgery Friday after he was on life support Thursday in the ICU. Carrington was shot multiple times in the 5600 block of Summerfield Avenue around 3:24 p.m.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said that an initial investigation revealed that 43-year-old Carrington was standing in front of his lawn, speaking with a neighbor, when an unknown vehicle — believed to be an Acura — pulled onto the street.
A man wearing a mask got of the vehicle and demanded valuables. Carrington’s neighbor threw what items he had on the ground and ran- Carrington ran in the opposite direction.
The gunman ran after Carrington and shot him multiple times before fleeing the scene with the help of a getaway driver.
