Police continue to search for gunman after Baltimore detective shot

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan wrote on Twitter, "The First Lady and I are asking all Marylanders to join us in praying for the Baltimore Police officer shot in the line of duty".

Police officers respond to Bennett Place and N. Fremont Avenue after a call went out that an officer is shot, November 15, 2017, in Baltimore, Md.

Baltimore Police say the 18-year veteran was shot in the head near Fremont Ave. and West Franklin Street while working on an investigation around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

According to ABC 2 News, three agencies -FBI, the ATF, and Metro Crime Stoppers - have pooled resources to offer a combined reward of $64,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the person responsible for shooting the officer.

Davis said the detective tried to start a conversation with the suspicious man when the man fired at the detective's head.

A Maryland homicide detective is in "grave condition" after being shot in the head on Wednesday afternoon, police said.




"This is a unsafe profession. We are doing everything we can to keep him stabilized to take care of the injury to his brain", Dr. Thomas Scalea said.

"With this community, we're going to identify him, we're going to arrest him, and we're going to ensure justice is done", Davis said. Police say this is an extremely unsafe area of the city.

The violence comes as Baltimore has been rocked by homicides - more than 300 so far this year.

Police officers and Baltimore city leaders gathered at the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center where the detective is on life support in the intensive care unit.

"We can not have violent criminals running our streets", Pugh said. Crime has to come to an end in this city. All calls and texts will remain anonymous.
