The funeral for Baltimore Officer William H. Torbit Jr. is scheduled to begin Wednesday morning with a small procession down Pennsylvania Avenue, where the drug cop patrolled for eight years and forged strong ties with the community.
Services will begin Wednesday at 10 a.m. at The Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in the 5200 block of N. Charles St., with an interment at Arbutus Memorial Park.
Police say North Charles Street between Cold Spring Lane and Northern Parkway will be closed, and that delays should be expected in the area.
Torbit was shot and killed by fellow officers Jan. 9 when he responded in plainclothes to help quell a disturbance outside of a club near downtown and became overwhelmed by the crowd. A 22-year-old man, who police believe was shot by Torbit, was also killed, and city officials have pledged an outside review of the investigation.
