Officer Brian Winder was shot and killed by two men, one of which he had arrested earlier in the week for selling illegal copies of CDs and DVDs.

Officer Winder responded to a 911 call at approximately 2100 hours, in which the caller asked authorities to remove someone from their residence. When Officer Winder arrived, he was warned that one of the men might be armed. The officer spotted two people who fit the description and called out to them. Both suspects fled into a liquor store on Edmondson Avenue. As Officer Winder approached the store, the suspects opened fire from within, striking Officer Winder twice in the legs and once in the chest just above his vest. One suspect then exited the store and continued firing at the officer.

He was able to escape, but the second suspect was captured after responding officers fired at him. Officer Winder was transported to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center where he died.

The suspect who escaped was located in a Baltimore motel on the morning of July 7. He committed suicide as the Baltimore Police Department's Quick Response Team entered his room.

Officer Winder had served with the Baltimore City Police Department for 10 years, and was assigned to the Southwest District. He is survived by his wife, two sons, and a stepdaughter.
