PC Batts: Suspect Gregg Thomas has Turned Himself In

Updated: Tuesday, March 18 2014, 07:46 PM EDT

Police Commissioner Batts announced that Gregg Thomas, the primary suspect in shooting a police officer, has turned himself in. 

Batts announced at a second conference held Sunday evening that Thomas turned himself in after an earlier presser Sunday afternoon.

The motive is "still an open question" at this time, according to Commissioner Batts.

Now that police have Thomas in custody, Batts vowed "our job is to bring him to justice."

Batts also reissued the warning that anyone who may have helped or harbored Thomas will be held responsible.

"Anyone who had an opportunity to give him a piece of bread, a car ride, a place to lay his head, we're going after them," promised Batts.

The Commissioner also thanked his officers who "stood tall in the face of an attack on one of our own, a member of our family."

Batts also read a statement to officers from Sgt. McNeill's wife who said, "I appreciate everyone's prayers, support and the long hours you put in to catch the man who shot Keith."

The Baltimore City Police Department was joined in the two-day search by the U.S. Marshals Service, the FBI SWAT Team, the city's Hostage Negotiation Team, the Anne Arundel SWAT Team, the Baltimore County SWAT Team and police officers, and Maryland State Police officers.
