BALTIMORE — An off-duty Baltimore Police Sergeant was shot and robbed while standing in front of his Northeast Baltimore home Thursday afternoon.

It happened just before 3:30 p.m. in the 5500 block of Summerfield Avenue.

Police say 22-year department veteran Isaac Carrington was in plain clothes, on his front lawn speaking with a neighbor when a dark vehicle believed to be an Acura pulled up.

At least one masked gunman got out of the car and demanded their property.

The neighbor threw whatever belongings he had to the ground and began running away. Carrington tried running in the opposite direction, when the gunman gave chase and shot him multiple times.

Within minutes, Carrington was transported to Shock Trauma and into surgery with several gunshot wounds to the torso and extremities.

The gunman then got back into the vehicle and fled north on Summerfield Avenue, turning west onto Todd Avenue.

Doctors say Carrington is out of the operating room, and currently in the intensive care unit on life support. He's expected to have to undergo additional surgeries.
