Detective Sean Suiter succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained the previous day while attempting to interview a person during a homicide investigation in the 900 block of Bennett Place.

He and his partner were canvassing the area when he observed a man attempting to hide in an alley. He notified of his partner and then approached the man to speak to him. A struggle ensued in which the subject was able to gain control of Detective Suiter's service weapon. The man then used the service weapon to shoot him in the head.

Detective Suiter was placed in a patrol car to be transported to University of Maryland Medical Center. During the transport the patrol car was struck by another vehicle. Detective Suiter was then transferred to another vehicle and transported to the hospital where he remained on life support until succumbing to the wound the following day.

The man who shot him fled the scene and remains at large.

Detective Suiter, a U.S. Army veteran, had served with the Baltimore Police Department for 18 years and was assigned to the Homicide Unit. He is survived by his wife and five children.
