“These officers, on a day we bury a cop, they’re out here doing this very, very difficult work,” Davis said. “They’re not slowing down. They’re serving this community. They’re doing exactly what we asked them to do.”
The other officer was able to apprehend the suspect and recover the gun by using a Taser.
Police did not name the man, but said he is about 35 years old, has himself been shot multiple times in his life, and is prohibited from carrying a firearm because he is a convicted felon, Davis said.
He was taken to Harbor Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries related to the Taser.
Sean Suiter, the 43-year-old Baltimore homicide detective who was killed two weeks ago while investigating a triple-murder on the city’s west side, was remembered Wednesday at a funeral attended by thousands.
