BALTIMORE (WJZ) – As Baltimore officer Keona Holley continued to fight for her life in the ICU, community members came together Tuesday night to pray for her recovery.
We Back Blue, a law enforcement advocacy organization, held a vigil outside the southeast police precinct.
Candles were lit, with dozens of people coming to pray for Holley’s life.
Four days earlier, Holley was in her patrol car on Pennington Avenue in Curtis Bay at about 1:30 a.m. when she was ambushed and shot, the police said. She was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Two men were arrested Friday after police recovered a vehicle of interest based on surveillance video reviewed by detectives.
We Back Blue Ambassador Tim Fazenbaker said: “When Officer Holley was shot, I wanted officers around the city and state to know that we will stand with them because they have always supported us.
The group is calling for an end to violence against police officers and calling for the destruction of police officers.
“She was a single mother with four children ambushed. Why are we not completely outraged by that? “We Back Blue’s Melissa Robey said.
Holley is listed as in critical but stable condition.
“We’ll do whatever we can by praying to make sure she makes it through,” Fazenbaker said.
