Two men were shot in Baltimore on Wednesday evening in the hours following the shooting of a homicide detective on the west side of the city, police said.

Baltimore Police are warning the public of fake GoFundMe pages that were created following the death of 43-year-old homicide detective Sean Suiter. When he approached the man, the suspect shot him in the head.

He was rushed to Shock Trauma, where he died around noon Thursday surrounded by his wife and children.

Suiter was a husband and a father of five and had been with the BPD for more than 18 years.

"We will find the person responsible for this ridiculous, unnecessary, absurd loss of life", Davis said.

"We remain dedicated and committed to finding the person who ended such a handsome life, such a wonderful detective, husband, father and friend", the police commissioner said. "This kind of violence can not be tolerated", she said.

"It shouldn't take 69 cents and we are absolutely certain that the community will step up help bring this heartless ruthless, soulless killer to justice", Davis said. Gov. Larry Hogan committed the state would pay a $100,000 reward.
