Officer Richard Seebo was shot and killed by a suspect after stopping a vehicle for traffic violations.

Officer Seebo was a motorcycle officer and had stopped a 1955 green and white Pontiac for traffic violations. After stopping the suspect vehicle, the vehicle drifted backward and knocked Officer Seebo off his motorcycle.

After getting up, Officer Seebo walked up to the driver's side and began talking to the male driver who had exited the vehicle. A second male walked up to the car and joined the conversation but left shortly thereafter. As the second man walked away, the driver produced a handgun and shot Officer Seebo twice in the chest. As Officer Seebo laid on the ground, the man removed Officer Seebo's service weapon and fired a third shot into the officer. The suspect then took the officers gun with him and fled the scene.

The suspect was apprehended three days later in Camden, South Carolina. He was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison. In 1991 his appeal for a new trial was denied.

Officer Seebo is survived by his wife and two daughters and had been employed with the Baltimore City Police Department for 3 years.
