A woman who works as a police officer in Baltimore is currently on life support after she was shot while being on patrol and sitting in her police car.


Reportedly she was sitting in her car when an armed man came up to her and opened fire.

She received multiple shots before the thug ran away.

Upon witnessing the suspicious man she pressed the accelerator pedal and perhaps that will save her life in the end.

“This was a cowardly, brazen act to walk up and open fire on a police officer who was doing what we asked that officer to do – to go out to protect and serve,” Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said in a statement.

“Our prayers are with the officer’s family. We are determined to find those responsible for this heinous crime and will not rest until we do,” he added.

Among other officials who commented on the incident was the Mayor of Baltimore Brandon Scott.

“We have a coward on the loose in Baltimore that we must and will find,” he said.

An investigation was launched into the matter.
