Baltimore, Md. -- For the third time in 10 days, police officers flooded a waiting room of the Maryland Shock Trauma Center to anxiously await news of a colleague who had been shot and seriously injured.

Yesterday, they were there for Baltimore County Police Officer David T. Garner, a member of the canine unit who was wounded while tracking a robbery suspect who had taken refuge in a backyard shed.
