BALTIMORE — UPDATE: The two individuals taken into custody have been ruled out as suspects and are being held on unrelated criminal charges.

Baltimore Police pulled over a car fitting the description of two men sought in the shooting of a Baltimore Police sergeant.

The officer attempted to stop the blue Acura on Patapsco Avenue in Southwest Baltimore but the driver fled. The pursuit ended in Lansdowne.

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.

Baltimore City FOP President Mike Mancuso visited Sgt. Carrington in the hospital today and tweeted thanking everyone for their concern and to continue praying for his recovery.

Anyone with information is asked to call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCK-UP. An award of up to $19,000.00 is being offered.
