Baltimore police Officer Raymond E. Cook Jr. sped through a stop sign at an intersection before his cruiser collided with another police car this month, killing Officer Anthony A. Byrd, according to a report released by the department yesterday. (Read Officer Byrd's officer down)
Deputy Police Commissioner Marcus Brown said failing to halt at a stop sign is a severe infraction that could lead to Cook's dismissal.
