Commissioner Kevin Davis said Friday that investigations are holding this crime scene where Detective Sean Suiter was killed Wednesday through the weekend.  That's because the department is hoping for the tip that finds Suiter's killer.

"We're always one tip away were one moment away from breaking this case wide open so I encourage our tipsters to keep calling." said Commissioner Kevin Davis.

And that's why those who live near the 900 block of Bennett Place where Detective Sean Suiter was shot in the head Wednesday will see police all over their neighborhood this weekend. 

"We have to be right.  We can't be loose with the facts we can't take to social media or Twitter when a source puts something in our laps," Davis said Friday.

Davis also reiterated Friday that Suiter's gun was fired more than once and his killer is likely injured from the incident.

"We're asking anyone with friends, family, acquaintances that know of anyone with a new unexplained injury and they're either seeking treatment unconventionally for that injury or they're not getting treatment we need to know about it."

Friday was spent breaking down doors of abandoned homes and boarding them back up--all hands on deck to find the person who took one of Baltimore's own.

"When a cop is killed that goes way beyond that murder, it's an attack on American policing," Davis said.

Commissioner Davis also warned people that Suiter's killer is likely still in Baltimore. 

Anyone with information is asked to call police immediately or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP.
