A new civilian hire of the Baltimore Police Department was fired after they realized he was a person of interest in a homicide investigation


City police identified the official as ... the chief of fiscal services, which is the No. 3 position in BPD's fiscal division.


Sources told the 11 News I-Team that [the man] was fired soon after he got on an elevator at police headquarters and was recognized by a detective working the homicide case in which [the man] is a person of interest.


[Also, a] man by the same name was put on the city's gun offender registry in 2019. 

Baltimore Sun:

“There was a background investigation done, and the HR department did a background investigation,” he said. “It was missed.”

[T]he ongoing homicide investigation is unrelated to the arrest that put [the man] on the gun offender registry.
