Did a Baltimore Homicide Detective Shoot Himself to Get Worker’s Compensation?



Here’s a weird one. In 2011, a Baltimore city homicide detective  was shot in a parking garage downtown. And state prosecutors believe the assailant may have been himself. Now Anthony Fata is on trial for “perjury, misconduct in office, and making false claims to obtain worker’s compensation.

Fata claimed that he was confronted by an armed man (who was black, just like Karla Porter’s imaginary gunman) in the parking garage stairwell. The man shot at him, after which Fata returned fire. The gunman ran up the stairs, and for a moment Fata followed, but eventually hung back, believing he was out of bullets.
