Governor Larry Hogan issued the following statement on today’s shooting in Northeast Baltimore:
“This morning, two members of a joint federal-state-local task force—a Baltimore City police officer and a Baltimore County police officer—were struck by gunfire during a warrant apprehension operation.
“This task force included state troopers assigned to the Maryland State Apprehension Team, as well as Maryland Transportation Authority Police. I have directed Maryland State Police Superintendent Bill Pallozzi to offer the state’s full support and all available resources for the investigation. We ask Marylanders to join us in praying for the full and speedy recovery of the brave officers who were injured.
“Every day, state law enforcement officials are working in close coordination with federal and local agencies in Baltimore City and throughout the state. We are providing unprecedented resources to combat this violent crime crisis from all directions, with everything we’ve got. The time has come for Baltimore City to finally take back its streets and communities, once and for all.”
