BALTIMORE (WHTM) – The search for a suspect in the killing of a Baltimore homicide detective is in its third day.
Federal agencies including the FBI, ATF, and DEA are now involved in the manhunt for the person who shot Sean Suiter, an 18-year veteran of the department and a resident of Conewago Township, in York County.
Suiter died at a hospital Thursday. He was a married father of five and a former U.S. Navy officer.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said Suiter was investigating a 2016 homicide in West Baltimore with his partner on Wednesday when he saw a man acting suspiciously. He approached the man and was shot during a confrontation.
Davis said Suiter’s gun was fired multiple times. Based on evidence collected at the scene, investigators believe the shooter may be injured.
A $190,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
