The incident unfolded Wednesday evening as the detective confronted a man while investigating a killing in West Baltimore, police officials said. We will find the person responsible for this ridiculous, absurd, unnecessary loss of life, "said Commissioner Davis".

Suiter was the 137th Baltimore police officer to die in the line of duty.

Davis said a manhunt was underway for a "heartless, ruthless, soulless killer" who shot the detective who was "just doing his job", working in a troubled area of the city grappling with high crime rates.

"Every police officer in our County is heartbroken at this senseless tragedy, and our prayers are with our brothers and sisters in the Baltimore City Police Department", Police Chief Timothy Altomare said in a statement.

Suiter was a father of five, an 18-year veteran of the force and "a loved guy", according to Davis. Police plan on keeping blocks of the West Baltimore neighborhood where the shooting happened cordoned off through the weekend because evidence is leading detectives to conduct searches there. Numerous cruisers responded and a police helicopter buzzed overhead, illuminating streets below with a searchlight.

The violence comes as Baltimore has been rocked by homicides - more than 300 so far this year. And I can say to you all again and again: Enough is enough.

"Violence in this city is out of control and I think [City Council President] Jack Young said it best last night, I'm sick and exhausted of being sick and exhausted".

Governor Larry Hogan has also stated that on behalf of the State of Maryland an additional $100,000 will be added to the reward for information on the suspect involved in the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 410-396-2221, Metro Crimes Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP, or text a tip to the BPD Mobile App.
