Police say they have new evidence in shooting death of detective

Sean SuiterThe Baltimore City Police Department reported Monday that they have discovered new evidence in a shooting that killed a homicide detective in the line of duty.

“Based on the autopsy, it’s made us think about this murder in a different way that’s led us to recover evidence today that we had not yet recovered,” Commissioner Kevin Davis said in a press conference. “There are different types of evidence that we can forensically recover from a scene. We learn things like trajectory, proximity of discharge of a firearm.”

Sean Suiter, an 18-year police veteran and former Naval officer, was shot last Wednesday after he and his partner approached a man who was engaging in “suspicious behavior” in the Harlem Park neighborhood, according to police.  Suiter died Thursday at the hospital with a gunshot wound to the head, police said.

According to police, the suspect is still on the loose and a reward for information on the suspect or shooting has increased to $215,000. Anyone with information can call the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI, Baltimore Police Homicide Detectives at 410-398-2100 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7LOCKUP

A GoFundMe Page has been set up for Suiter’s family which has already received $32,000.
