Baltimore police detective funeral today

At a funeral this morning, family and friends will remember the life of a Baltimore police detective who died after an altercation over a Canton parking space.

Detective Brian Stevenson, who served 18 years on the Baltimore police force, was killed Oct. 16, an hour before his 38th birthday, after police said he was struck on the temple with a chunk of concrete.

Stevenson, who lived in Gwynn Oak, grew up in the city and as an officer investigated shootings and robberies in the Northeast District. The Dunbar High School graduate is the first city officer to die at the hands of another since Jan. 9, 2007, when Officer Troy Lamont Chesley Sr. was fatally shot during a robbery while off duty.

The funeral service was scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. at New Antioch Baptist Church in Randallstown.
