Officers Thomas R. Cave and Charles A. Walker

Off Thomas CaveCentral District Officers Wounded December 1973   Officer Thomas Cave Both officers heard the radio dispatcher announce that a man with a gun had been sighted at Gay and Baltimore Streets. Officers Thomas R. Cave and Charles A. Walker, working Central District foot-posts, responded to the scene. Upon their arrival in the middle of Baltimore's "Block" they were told that a man with a gun was in one of the night spots located in the 400 block East Baltimore Street. Leaving the brightly lighted sidewalk they entered the establishment and were directed to the two men seated at the far end of the dimly lighted bar.   Officer Charles Walker It was moments before midnight as the officers approached the suspects who had apparently spent this day after Christmas visiting some of the city's night spots. After observing that the lighting was somewhat better in a rear room of the establishment the officers requested that the suspects accompany them to that area. As the four entered a hallway leading to two small rooms the shorter of the two suspects suddenly opened fire. In the ensuing exchange of

gunfire the officers were wounded; Officer Cave was shot through both legs and Officer Walker received a wound which fractured his right arm. The gunman was mortally wounded and his partner received a wound of the chest. EmployeesOff Charles Walker and patrons of the bar were still seeking cover behind the bar and tables nearby as officers, responding to a Signal 13, entered to summon medical aid for the injured parties. The on-the-scene investigation commenced immediately. The wounded officers as well as the civilian who had been wounded in the chest were taken to nearby Mercy Hospital for treatment.

All were admitted for additional treatment and observation. Investigators from the Criminal Investigation Division discovered, a day later, that the mortally wounded suspect was an escapee from a Western Maryland detention facility. It was learned that he had been convicted of the robbery/murder of a Prince George's County taxicab driver in 1968 and that he had escaped from a work detail on Greenmount Avenue in Baltimore in October of 1973. The second suspect was released from the hospital the next morning to face charges in connection with the incident.
