CEDONIA, MD – Police have released additional details on a Thursday afternoon shooting that left a Baltimore Police Department sergeant on life support.

At just before 3:30 p.m., officers responded to the 5600-block of Summerfield Avenue (21206) to investigate a reported shooting.

Officers arrived at the location and found a 43-year-old male suffering from gunshot wounds. The victim was taken to Shock Trauma for treatment.

The victim was quickly identified as an off-duty Baltimore police sergeant, Isaac Carrington, who has been with the department for twenty-two years.

According to witnesses, Sgt. Carrington was standing on his front lawn speaking with a neighbor when a vehicle, believed to be an Acura, pulled onto the street. At least one male who was wearing a mask exited the vehicle, pointed a gun at the men, and demanded their property.

The neighbor threw what items of value he had to the ground and took off running. Sgt. Carrington began running in the opposite direction.
