Police said they now have both men in custody.
At this time, Baltimore Police cannot confirm that these are the suspects involved in the shooting of Sgt. Isaac Carrington.
Sgt. Carrington was off-duty when he was shot and robbed while standing in front of his Northeast Baltimore home Thursday afternoon.
He is in the intensive care unit at Shock Trauma and after at least two more surgeries Friday he remains in critical condition.
