A year later, the very block where Sergeant Carrington was inured on was renamed “Isaac Carrington, Sr. Way”.

The Baltimore Police Department said in a Facebook post, “Although Sgt. Carrington’s road to recovery is far from over, his strength, resilience, courage, and sense of humor is as strong as ever.”
