Off-duty police officer killed over parking space

An off-duty Baltimore, Maryland, police officer died late Saturday night after being attacked during an argument over a parking space.

He was out celebrating his 38th birthday, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

"One suspect pulled out a blunt object and bludgeoned the officer," Guglielmi said. "Some individuals are in custody being questioned who were found at a nearby nightclub."

The off-duty detective, whose name has not yet been released, was rushed to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center where he later died from his injuries.

    @kat~THERE you got the biggest problem with crime,in this country today~about 90% of every time violent crimes happen~the person doing the crime has ALREADY been in jail for another violent crime~and paroled!~Noww,I believe in 2nd chances,but not for anyone who has commited a violent crime~those we need to KEEP locked up!

    1.Senseless killing goes back to the beginning of mankind because unfortunately it is a part of human nature. 2. There are good and bad cops and there are good and bad people regardless of race or religion. 3. Over population adds to all of the worlds problems including the economy. 4. Alcohol sucks – vote yes on prop 19!!!
