August 12

The Post reports that police searching murdered prison guard David McGuinn's Baltimore apartment discovered copies of incident reports that prison officials claim didn't exist, leading to speculation that fellow guards allowed McGuinn to be killed because he wouldn't turn a blind eye to corrpution.

The Baltimore City Grand Jury indicted Demetri Jamal Greer, 18, of the 2800 block of E. Monument Street on first-degree murder and weapons charges. Court documents allege on July 20 Greer, along with an unknown female, assaulted and engaged in an altercation with the victim. The victim, Dion Williams, 16, was shot at close range. He died a short time later at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He was victim #145 of 2006. Greer had been charged with armed robbery in Towson in 2004 when he was 16, but was released on the condition that he attend Harbor City High and abide by curfews.
