Retired Officer Shoots Restaurant Robber

The Baltimore Sun via YellowBrix

December 30, 2010

BALTIMORE- UPDATE: Baltimore police told us a few minutes ago that the person shot has been declared brain dead. Additional details are below.

Details remain slim, but police say a retired Baltimore officer shot and critically wounded a man who tried to rob a Pimlico carryout Wednesday night.

A man described as being in his late teens or early 20s brandished a handgun inside Judy’s Island Grill & Bake Shop. The retired officer, who was eating inside, confronted and then shot the gunman.

Police released no other information Wednesday night, but we’re expecting an update later this morning.

The Baltimore Sun reviewed the restaurant in 2007, which offered curried shrimp, oxtail stew and jerk fish. The reviewer seemed to like the offerings of Jamaican and Caribbean fare.

NEW INFORMATION:

Det. Kevin Brown, a city police spokesman, said the retired officer is 63 years old. He had been walking out of the carry-out when he encountered man about 25 years old who tried to rob the restaurant. “The retired Officer shot the suspect once,” Brown said in a statement. “The suspect was transported to an area hospital and is clinically brain dead, and not expected to recover as his injuries are non-life sustaining. The suspect’s weapon was recovered at the scene.”

    Regretably, the officer still may face a law swell.uit and the costs associated with it. A righteous shoot or not, the vultures come out if they smell blood or money. I wish him well

    HR-218 has no bearing in this shooting as the Retired Officer is carrying in "HIS HOME STATE" , 218 is for outside the boundaries of your permit jurisdiction or State. Don't be surprised to see a Law Suit brought by the Family of the Bad Guy , they bring suit on working Officers almost every time and they have the "RESPONSIBILITY TO TAKE ACTION" . I just Pray this Retired Officer had an Indemnification Insurance Policy on his own to fight this possible suit. Working Officers have the policy via the Employing Agency .

    Retleo , you hit the nail on the head about "what retired" , sort of like calling a "FORMER MARINE AND X MARINE , AIN'T NO SUCH ANIMAL IT'S IN THE BLOOD".

    I just LOVE the way the reporter snuck a food critic review into this article.
    I's like to buy the guy lunch.

    I'd like to buy the retired LEO a case of his favorite beverage. Good Job!
