Cop Shot Is Also A Firefighter---Time To Protest? (The Secret List)

Monday, December 15, 2014   All,



It's been a crazy 24 hours between the NSW terror hostages, the Prince Georges County Ambulance jacking and so much more....and now this...


As you may have read or heard, a 27 year old Baltimore City Police Officer was shot last evening during a traffic stop in west Baltimore. The officer and his partner conducted the stop in the 2600 block of Gwynns Falls Parkway around 1915 hours. They did a car stop on suspicious activity, and they walked up to the car...and shots were fired.


Police Officer Andrew Groman was hit under his vest and was rushed to Sinai Hospital were he underwent surgery and is in stable but critical condition. Groman is also a past Captain with the Warrington Fire Company in Bucks County, PA.


You may remember that he was also one of two Firefighters we wrote about, that where injured in 2011 during a fire call for a front loader fire at a mulch farm.  He and the other member received burns after the loader exploded when preparing to attack the fire.


Last night, thankfully, the bullet missed one of Officer Gromans main arteries by a millimeter. It went through his intestines and colon-leaving two holes in his intestine. They repaired that but the bullet is still lodged above his right pelvic-and they will remove that at a later date. The Dr's wants to remove his catheter and have him walking by the end of the day and are talking about getting him out by the end of the week. He is doing well but in a lot of pain.


INITIAL REPORTS ARE THAT after the officers approached the car, a struggle ensued, a Taser was used and then someone in the car fired three shots, striking the officer once in the abdomen, They do not believe officers fired their service weapons during the shooting,...the officer's partner then rushed him to Sinai Hospital, where he had surgery last night.

 A few people were taken into custody, but only one man, a 19-year-old, was charged in the shooting so far....a violent repeat offender, Donte Jones. Cops have recovered the gun.

We are so thankful that Officer Groman survived this attack and wish him a rapid recovery. For those out there looking to protest something, how about protesting this attempted murder on these Police Officers? Just say'n...

Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
