BALTIMORE – Keona Holley, 39, a Baltimore cop who was shot in a patrol car a week ago, died in the hospital.
Officer Holley’s condition continued to deteriorate owing to the bullets.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison stated in a Facebook post that the woman’s health has deteriorated recently and her family had to make a painful decision.
The entire community is in our prayers for Officer Holley’s family and loved ones. I thank her and the entire BPD community for their dedication. “We mourn and heal together,” Harrison remarked.
In the early hours of December 16, an assailant approached the car and fired, hitting Holley. Holley accelerated the cop car and crashed it.
Elliot Knox, 31, and Travon Shaw, 32, have been charged with attempted murder in connection with the incident. They were also charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Justin Johnson, 38, 2 hours after Holley.
The Signal 13 Foundation, a non-profit organisation dedicated to assisting Baltimore cops and their families, is helping Holley’s family. They have already raised almost $36,000 for Holley’s four children’s schooling and other necessities.
