Detective Sean Suiter was shot on last Wednesday in Harlem Park while he was investigating a 2016 murder with his partner.

Davis said he was recently informed of the information by federal prosecutors, and was told that Suiter was not a target of the investigation.

Davis said that the acting US attorney told him that Suiter was set to testify the day after he was killed in a grand jury investigation involving some Baltimore police officers who were indicted, but he was not targeted because of that.

Davis also said Suiter was shot with his own gun, and struggled with the killer before the fatal shot was sacked. Sean Suiter will be held November 29 at a Baltimore church. Earlier, police had said Suiter's service weapon was sacked a few times, and said shell casings from his weapon were found at the scene.

The Baltimore Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation evidence shows that Suiter was killed after a "spontaneous" observation of a man acting suspiciously, Davis said.

According to WBAL, authorities have released new information indicating the slain father of five was secretly a witness in a federal investigation against multiple fellow police officers.

The slain officer's partner took cover across the street during the shooting, Fox 45 reported.

Abandoned buildings stand past members of the Baltimore Police Department near the scene of the shooting death of Baltimore Police detective Sean Suiter in Baltimore, Friday, Nov. 17, 2017.

A GoFundMe page set up for Suiter's family has already received more than $43,000 in donations.
