Non-Targeted Shooting of a Child

A quadruple shooting in the 2300 block of East Hoffman St. Monday night put four in the hospital, including a 10-year-old boy. As if it needed mentioning, the 10-year-old was not the target of the shooting.

A fella took a slug to the chest in the 1100 block of Myrtle Ave, while a man and a woman were both stabbed Monday near North Paca and West Saratoga St. 

A man who struck a police car sending Officer Teresa Rigby over the JFX has been convicted and sentenced. 23-year-old Robert Vanderford received 3 points on his license, a fine, and community service.

A drive-by on Loch Raven Blvd. in Towson has left a man in critical condition. Two men shot the unidentified male outside the Welcome Inn apartments. Violence isn't new to these apartments, as this was the same location that witness Alicia Lee Avery and her 4-year-old daughter were murdered by disgruntled ex-boyfriend Brian Lamont Eggleston Jr., a little less then a year ago. Eggleston's trial has been postponed twice so far, and no trial date is scheduled.  

Judge Sylvester Cox has taken a metaphorical hacksaw to the damages awarded to the family of Philip Parker Jr., a man strangled to death by fellow inmate Kevin Johns whilst on a prison bus. The settlement has been knocked from $18.5 Million to $600,000.

An argument led to a police standoff which led to a suicide. 28-year-old Ansley Turner is dead after taking his own life while in the midst of a standoff with police in the 5700 block of Fenwick Ave. Sunday afternoon. 

A series of robberies on York Rd. are just some of the many crimes mentioned by the North Baltimore Patch. 

So called "Drano bombs" are becoming the hot new toy of Dundalk hoodlums, as three have gone off in the last four days. In the reported instances, two arrests have been made. One was of a juvenile, and the other was of 18-year-old Marco DeJuan Jones, charged with detonating one during the Dundalk High senior picnic.

A one million dollar fine has been levied upon the man held responsible for the 2010 Ehrlich campaign robo-calls. Beyond being out a cool million, Julius Henson also faces sentencing for the crimes next month

Local criminals are breaking out in droves. Maybe breaking out isn't the correct term, maybe more like "walking swiftly away" in droves. A total of five different area criminals have suddenly gone on the lamb, with convicted murderer Jermaine Jeter, 30, being the first to go AWOL. Jeter went missing after not showing up for his job at Checkers... can't really hold that one against him.
Another three men, Antwan Fraiser, Joseph Ryles and Emanuel Rich simultaneously left a half-way home Sunday, before all apparently simultaneously turning themselves in on Tuesday. I'm not even going to bother to figure out the motivation for that sort of weirdly synchronized action.
Finally, 24-year-old Eliyahu Goode (Pictured Right), escaped from the Spring Grove Hospital Center, a psychiatric facility. Goode was in the psychiatric facility after being found to be incompetent to stand trial for Robbery. 

Finally, 10 years in the federal clink for heroin kingpin Kevin Hently, 53. Hently was sentenced for his leadership role in an organization that imported the drug from New York by the kilo.

FYI - Michael Williams on Harlem Avenue has been removed as a justified self-defense case
