Next week, family, friends and well-wishers will gather at Emmanuel Wesleyan Church in Salisbury to mourn the loss of Wicomico County Sheriff’s Deputy 1st Class Glenn Hilliard. The 16-year law enforcement veteran and father of three was killed in the line of duty, gunned down on Sunday evening by a man wanted on multiple criminal warrants, according to law enforcement. It is a terrible and cruel event. The only comfort to be found might be in the outpouring of love and respect for Deputy Hilliard so evident in this lower Eastern Shore community — including hundreds gathering at Perdue Stadium to light candles and give tribute to the him Monday — and that law enforcement already have a suspect in custody: Austin J. Davidson, 20, of Delmar.
The death of a Wicomico deputy is tragic, blaming it on Baltimore is highly misleading
