On November 22, Commissioner Davis made the claim to the media that slain Baltimore homicide Detective Sean Suiter was with his partner at the time of the shooting. However, back on November 16th, the Baltimore Sun reported that Det. Jonathan Jones was Suiter’s partner in the homicide unit, and that Jones happened to be off from work the day of the shooting.
The media interviewed Det. Jones about his relationship with Suiter.
According to the local activist group, Baltimore Bloc, the actual officer who was with Suiter at the time of the shooting was Detective David Bomenka, who is seen in photos taken in 2015 standing directly next to Commissioner Davis wearing a flashy white suit instead of a uniform. Baltimore Bloc also found that Bomenka is Facebook friends with one of the officers who is involved in the indictment, and while this could just be because they work at the same department, it is important to consider.
