Batts: 'Gregg Thomas is Public Enemy Number One'

Updated: Sunday, March 16 2014, 06:45 PM EDT

Police Commissioner Batts held a second press conference Sunday to give an update on Sgt. McNeill's condition and his search for the primary suspect, 34-year-old Gregg Thomas.

Batts said he had visited with Sgt. McNeill and his family again Sunday and received a thumbs up from the officer who is still "fighting for his life."

The officer is "barely conscious" and has a tube inserted in his throat, keeping him from speaking, but he did communicate with Commissioner Batts.

Gregg Thomas is currently "Public Enemy Number One" according to Batts.

Police believe he is hiding somewhere in the streets of Baltimore.

Batts warned that anyone who harbors him will be held responsible.

He also spoke directly to Thomas, stating it would be better for him to turn himself in as soon as possible.

Police are still investigating Thomas' history of violence in the city.

He has previous drug charges, in which he was bailed out by his mother.

He also was charged and imprisoned for murder in 2003 but was released early. 

When asked how a murderer could be released early, Batts said he personally thought it was "ridiculous" and "unacceptable."

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-396-2100.
