Former Baltimore Officer Arrested After Wife Shot Him For Sexually Abusing Children at Her Daycare

Police say a former Baltimore police officer was arrested on child sex abuse charges while being treated in the hospital on Monday. The former officer was shot by his wife after he was accused of sexually abusing children at her daycare center.

On Thursday, Shanteari Weems, 50, shot her husband James S. Weems Jr., 57, at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Washington, D.C.

According to the press release, when detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department arrived at the scene following a report of a shooting, they discovered James Weems in a hotel room with what appeared to be gunshot wounds.

The injuries he sustained were life-threatening.
Two guns were found in the room, along with a letter written by Shanteari Weems apologizing to the children. She said she didn’t know what was happening at the daycare, NBC Washington reported.
The responding officers arrested Shanteari Weems and charged her with assault with intent to kill with a firearm. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Friday.
James Weems was served with an arrest warrant for child sex abuse allegations on Monday.

According to the Baltimore County Police Department, the warrant came after “allegations surfaced that Weems sexually abused at least three children while working at a daycare facility in Owings Mills.”
