The man wanted by police in the shooting of an officer in east Baltimore Friday evening turned himself in Sunday, reports WBAL-TV.

The off-duty officer, identified on Saturday as 19-year veteran Sgt. Keith McNeill, was shot around 7 p.m. Friday in the 1900 block of Belair Road, where he was targeted while running errands, Batts said. Bullet holes riddled the driver's side window of his personal pickup truck. McNeill was shot several times in the upper torso.

A suspect identified as Gregg Thomas, 34, turned himself in Sunday after a two-day manhunt.

"One less suspect, one less killer on the streets of Baltimore," Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said. "We don't know the motive. I don't know why you would walk up to someone in a car and shoot them multiple times. All I can say is I thank God that my officer is still alive. I do thank God that his family will not be without a husband or a dad."
