Story | Feb 17, 2015 | 5:50 PMIn a week when the police commissioner told a national audience that Baltimore City has “1950s-level, black and white racism,” the police identified an officer who fired his gun in the line of duty as Rashard King, a five-year veteran in the patrol division. King was reportedly working a private security job in the county when he accidentally shot a 14-year-old boy while investigating a burglary. The boy is expected to live. City police are also investigating the death of a suspect in their custody. A man police captured on Saturday in the woods off York Road complained of trouble breathing “due to a pre-existing condition,” according to police. He died soon after, despite receiving medical attention, the police said in a statement. The man who died has not yet been publicly identified. So far this year there have been three fewer murders than there were on this date last year.
