(Baltimore) -- Baltimore police are clearing the crime scene where an unidentified gunman killed a detective with ties to the midstate last week.

The Baltimore Sun reports the perimeter around the area where Detectvie Steve Suiter was shot is to be removed today after a six-day lock down.

Police are continuing to investigate the shooting.

Suiter, a married father of five who lived in Conewago Township, York County was shot in the head last Wednesday while working a case. He was an an 18-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department

A reward of $215,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot him.

Several politicians have donated to the fund, including a $100,000 contribution from Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and $20,000 from Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh.

The large reward has been criticized by people who say that civilian homicides don't receive such attention.
