BALTIMORE, MD. (Thursday, December 16, 2021) — Mayor Brandon M. Scott released the following statement on the shooting of a police officer, which occurred early this morning: 

“Early this morning, a Baltimore Police officer was shot in the line of duty and is in grave condition at the University of Maryland Medical System Shock Trauma Center. My heartfelt prayers go out to the officer’s family and fellow officers who selflessly risk their lives to safeguard our neighborhoods and build a better Baltimore. Whoever committed this heinous act is a coward who must be brought to justice for our officer, the officer's family, and our city. I have no doubt that our detectives will find those responsible, but we need anyone with information to come forward and share it with us now. No family should be dealing with this pain, especially during the holidays. As a city, we owe it to this officer to quickly bring those responsible to justice.”
