Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake
on Wednesday called allegations that a police officer may have been involved in the aftermath of a fatal shooting of a 13-year-old girl "disgusting."
"As a mother, it's hard for me to describe what a tragedy this is," the mayor said, speaking after the weekly Board of Estimates meeting. "It's a tragedy made worse by allegations of police involvement. The thought of it is quite frankly disgusting."
Rawlings-Blake said she had spoken with relatives of Monae Turnage to give her sympathies. She declined to comment on the details of the case, but said she would not stand for wrongdoing by police.
