Baltimore, Maryland – Statement from Acting United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Jonathan F. Lenzner:

“On behalf of the United States Attorney's Office, I would like to recognize the bravery and selfless commitment to public service of the Baltimore police officers assigned to the U.S. Marshal Service Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force who were shot and injured today in the line of duty.  Today is a painful reminder of the dangers that law enforcement face every day in performing their duties to keep our communities safe.  As reflected in their actions today, these two officers and their colleagues are dedicated to making communities in Baltimore safer, and they deserve our gratitude and appreciation.”
