Officer Holley was transported to a local hospital where she remained in critical condition until succumbing to her wounds on December 23rd, 2021.

Both suspects were arrested several days after the initial shooting and charged in connection with both incidents.

Officer Holley had served with the Baltimore City Police Department for two years. She is survived by her four children, parents, and sister.

In 2021, Pennington Avenue was renamed in honor of Police Officer Keona Holley.
