Baltimore County Police Officers are wearing mourning bands on their badges today in memory of a fallen hero.
On July 6, 1977, Officer Charles Huckeba (26) had been with the Baltimore County Police Department for less than a year when he responded to a domestic disturbance in Lansdowne. He was shot and killed by a man in the home.
Huckeba left behind a wife and young son.
Officer John Stem was also shot during the incident. He died from complications in 2000.
