Manhunt continues for shooter of Baltimore detective

BALTIMORE (AP) — The manhunt for the killer of a Baltimore homicide detective has entered its third day.

Baltimore police detective Niki Fennoy said Friday that federal agents assisting the department are at the crime scene.

They include agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The FBI and other agencies are also involved.

Sean Suiter was shot late Wednesday afternoon and died Thursday.

Police say the shooter was a man Suiter approached in a vacant lot in a particularly troubled area of West Baltimore. Suiter and a partner were investigating a 2016 homicide. Police said Suiter approached the man because he was "acting suspiciously."

The Baltimore Sun reports that rewards totaling nearly $190,000 have been offered for information.

The 43-year-old Suiter was an 18-year veteran of the force.
