BALTIMORE — Baltimore police have cleared the crime scene where an unidentified gunman killed a detective last week.

The Baltimore Sun reports the perimeter around the area where Detective Sean Suiter was shot was removed Monday after a six-day lock down.

Police are continuing to investigate the shooting. Suiter, a married father of five, was shot in the head Wednesday while working a case.

A reward of $215,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot him. Several politicians have donated to the fund, including a $100,000 contribution from Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and $20,000 from Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh.

The large reward has been criticized by people who say that civilian homicides don’t receive such attention.


This story has been corrected to show the first name of the police officer is Sean, not Steve.
