About a year ago, a courageous group of Baltimore Police Officers risked their lives by entering into an active shooter situation in North Baltimore. One of these brave men was shot but managed to return fire, killing the suspect. Sgt. Bill Shiflett was severely wounded in this incident and could have easily succumbed to his injuries, but we all know that Bill Shiflett is one of the toughest among us and we knew he would pull through.
After a year of brutal rehabilitation, I am proud to announce that Sgt. Bill Shiflett is back to full duty. Bill did a great job fighting his way back and his family deserves a tremendous amount of respect and gratitude for all of the support and sustenance they provided him during this difficult time. I would also like to express my appreciation to Dr. Scalea and his amazing team at the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland for their incredible work, as always.
Welcome back, Bill!
