Thousands Mourn Slain Baltimore Detective

Thousands of mourners have gathered at a church for the funeral of a Baltimore police detective. 

Attendees at Det. Sean Suiter's Wednesday funeral included Maryland political leaders and numerous law enforcement officials, some traveling as far away as Chicago to honor a fallen colleague and his grieving family. 

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh says the killing of a police officer "leaves a stain on our city." Gov. Larry Hogan says Suiter "lived and died a hero." 

Suiter died Nov. 16 at a hospital a day after being shot in the head with his own gun while investigating a case in West Baltimore. He was an 18-year veteran of the police force and a married father of five.

A reward of $215,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot him.
