Edward S. Sherman

Police Officer Edward Sherman died as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning while sitting in his patrol car in the parking lot of Edgewood Elementary School.

Two other officers located the vehicle and found Officer Sherman unconscious. An examination of the vehicle determined that a piece of rubber molding was missing from the engine that caused the carbon monoxide to reach lethal doses, combined with the fact that all of the vehicle's windows were rolled up.

Officer Sherman was a U.S. Army veteran who had served with the Baltimore Police Department for six years and was assigned to the Southwestern District. He is survived by his wife and two sons.

I knew Eddie when we were stationed in Hanna Air Force Base in Germany. He was one of the nicest, kindest guys I ever met. I was from the South Bronx, Puerto Rican, and he was so open and generous and loving to us. He will come over and play folk songs, and protest songs on his 12 string guitar. I was never exposed to that that type of music before, but me and Annie fell in love with his music and with him . He was a wonderful human being, and may he rest in peace .I know I will see him in heaven someday. God bless him and his family.
