BALTIMORE — Baltimore Police Department's Sergeant Isaac Carrington was released from the University of Maryland's Shock Trauma Center on Wednesday afternoon.

Members of the police department and fire department honored him by forming a ceremonial gauntlet outside Shock Trauma's ambulance-bay entrance.

Almost two weeks ago, Carrington was shot and robbed outside of his home in Northeast Baltimore. He was then taken to Shock Trauma and into surgery with several gunshot wounds to the torso and extremities.


Following the release of Sgt. Carrington, BPD Commissioner Harrison said that after spending some time with the officer's family it is a joyous day for members of the department and the people of Baltimore.

“I think that we are all somewhat relieved, but certainly Sgt. Carrington has a long way to go for a full recovery. But we are prayerful and hopeful that he will make a full recovery,” said Harrison.

Harrison says police are still actively investigating the shooting and are asking for anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the person who did this to come forward.
