BALTIMORE — Baltimore Police Sergeant Isaac Carrington shared an important message on Sunday as he recovers from being shot multiple times Thursday afternoon.

Carrington was joined by Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison, who introduced Carrington and said that he has a long way to go, but that their prayers have been answered. Harrison said that the community needs to rally around Carrington as he continues to heal and "find who did this to hold them accountable."

"I love y'all," Carrington said. "I'll be back."

Carrington was shot and robbed while standing in front of his Northeast Baltimore home on Thursday.

Police say 22-year department veteran 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.
