Slain Baltimore homicide detective Sean Suiter was gunned down the day prior to scheduled testimony before a federal grand jury investigating a squad of previously-indicted police officers, Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis revealed at a Wednesday press conference.
“The BPD and FBI do not possess any information that this incident … is part of any conspiracy,” Commissioner Davis claimed.
“We know he was shot and killed with his own gun,” Davis also revealed.
Davis noted there was also “evidence of a struggle between Det. Suiter and his killer.”
Detective Suiter was an 18-year veteran of the force and left behind a wife and five children.
Authorities have offered a $215,000 reward. The suspect has been described as a black male who was wearing a black jacket with a white stripe.
“The fact that we have not yet made an arrest creates an environment for rumors to flourish,” Davis admitted.
