CRB: Cops used excessive force against suspect, recommends firings and suspensions

An independent Baltimore agency that reviews complaints against police says officers used excessive force in arresting a man facing murder charges.

Keith Davis Jr. is charged with murdering a security guard at Pimlico Race Course in 2015.  Officers shot at him as they chased him after a suspected robbery following the incident.  After looking into the case for two years, Baltimore's Civilian Review Board recommended two officers involved be fired and two others receive a 30-day suspension.  Davis will be tried for the murder case in June.
