Baltimore County detective from York County receives Congressional Badge of Bravery

A Baltimore County detective from York County who saved a life during a shootout in Maryland was honored Thursday on Capitol Hill.

Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey presented detective Roy Gibbs with the Congressional Badge of Bravery.

Detective Gibbs rescued a wounded officer during a shootout in June 2017.

The incident occurred in Dundalk, Maryland when an armed robbery suspect started shooting at police. The suspect shot two people, including the officer.

That’s when detective Gibbs left his cover and pulled the injured officer to safety while under fire.
