Officer Ira Neil Weiner

Sgt Benjamin GrahamOfficer Ira Neil Weiner 

On this day Baltimore City Police History 21 Sept 1992 we lost our brother Police Officer Ira Neil Weiner to gunfire based on the following:

After responding to a call for service at 1929 W. Mulberry Street, without provocation or warning, Officer Weiner was savagely attacked and stabbed repeatedly with the ice pick. The suspect then grabbed Officer Weiner’s pistol, ripped it from his holster and fired it into Ira as he stood over his now lifeless body. Officer Weiner was stabbed and shot multiple times, but that wasn’t enough, the coward then leaned down and shot him a single time in the back of his head. The suspect then began an exchange of gunfire with the responding backup units. Those backup officers would proceed to cut him down in the hail of gunfire that he deserved.

The Sun paper would report - “A drug-crazed man stabbed Officer Ira N. Weiner multiple times with an ice pick before he took the officer's pistol and shot him in the back of the head, according to the state medical examiner's office.” and “Officer Weiner, 28, was fatally wounded when he answered a call at a West Baltimore house on Saturday. Apparently, the Western District officer was unable to draw his 9mm Glock pistol because he was overwhelmed by his assailant. After stabbing Officer Weiner, the assailant used the officer's handgun to shoot him in the back of the left side of the head, a wound that proved fatal, Ms. [Tori Leonard] said. Additional stab wounds occurred after the shot, officials said.”

Ira was well known, well liked and well respected, he will be missed. As his brothers and sisters of the Baltimore Police Department we will not let him be forgotten, His service Honored the City of Baltimore, and the Baltimore Police Department may he rest in peace, and may God bless him.
