 Officer John Miller

Today in BPD History 7 Nov 1979, our Brother John Miller suffered two gunshot wounds during a confrontation with a mentally disturbed man on the old Central District parking lot across Fayette St from the main post office entrance. After being shot P/O Miller was able to get into his truck and drive towards Headquarters to seek help. At Fayette and Fallsway he spotted a patrol car - it was officers Carl Broeseker and Billy Anderson also of the Central District's Operations unit who were headed towards the station near the end of their 1700-0100 shift.
When Officer Miller stopped next to them and told them what had happened they quickly transferred him from his vehicle to theirs and rushed him to Mercy Hospital.

These officers saved their Brothers life that night, and while they were never formally recognized for what they did! We will always be grateful to them and to all who participated in the man hunt that led to the arrest of the man who shot our Brother Police Officer John Miller and the recovery of Officer Miller 's weapon.

Tough lessons learned by a very young officer!

Thanks Again Billy and Carl!!

Baltimore Police Historical Society

Baltimore Police Historical Society put the articles found on this site together using research from old newspapers, old books, old photographs, and old artifacts. We rely more heavily on information written at, or near the time of the incidents or events that we are researching. We do not put too much weight on the more recently written historic information, or information that has been written with a biased opinion, or agenda. We will not tell our readers what to think about our past, as much as we will tell a story as it was written with the hopes of our readers will form their own opinions. We tell a story about what happened, and not why it happened. That said, ever so often we might come across a story that to us is so exciting we might express an enthusiasm in our writings. We hope the reader will still form an opinion of their own based on the information written at the time, and not information more recently written that has a so-called "filtered past" or that has been twisted and pulled in the direction of a storyteller's personal feelings or agenda. Please enjoy the site and feel free to write us should you have any questions or information.
