A 43-year-old Baltimore Police detective has died after being shot in the head in west Baltimore Wednesday night.

CBS Baltimore writes that Detective Sean Suiter, a former Navy officer, was pronounced dead at noon Thursday, according to doctors.

They spoke at a press conference along with Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis and Mayor Catherine Pugh.

Suiter was a father of five, an 18-year veteran of the force and “a loved guy,” according to Davis.

The shooting happened on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. while the detective was investigating a 2016 murder in the neighborhood with a partner.

Davis says the shooting happened in a vacant space between two row homes on the street. That area is still a very active crime scene, Davis says.

CBS Baltimore reports that when Suiter approached a suspicious man, the man opened fire, police say. It is unknown if they exchanged words.

The officer was taken to Shock Trauma, where he was on full life support Wednesday night. He was pronounced dead Thursday at noon.
