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.
