Funeral for slain Baltimore officer
A Baltimore police officer shot to death by his fellow officers in an apparent case of mistaken identity will be laid to rest.
Funeral services for Officer William Torbit Jr. are scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in Baltimore.
Torbit was on duty and in plain clothes when he responded to a fight outside a nightclub on Jan. 9. Police say he was assaulted by a group of people, drew his gun and opened fire.
The gunshots led four uniformed officers to draw their weapons and start shooting. In all, 41 shots were fired -- all by police officers.
The department is still investigating the shooting, and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has ordered an outside review.
Torbit was 33 years old and an eight-year veteran of the police department.
