Old Shootings, COMSTAT Stats, and a Bevy of Wanted Criminals

Eleven years after being shot, 43-year-old Vernonda Fenner has been added to this year's homicide tally. Fenner was shot in the stomach on May 18, 2001. Fenner never fully recovered from the wound and died on May 4th of this year.

The latest Murder Ink has updates on several recent city homicides, giving information on victims 104-109.

Christmas is here for Baltimore residents who are fascinated by both statistics and crime, as the BPD has released COMSTAT data for all to enjoy.

Police have released a composite sketch of a man (Pictured Right), wanted in an attempted rape in the 2500 block of Edgecombe Circle North.

A man shot in the leg Saturday night in the 500 block of W. Lanvale St. decided to wait two hours until he finally checked himself into the hospital.

Two suspects, Mikris Jamaal Jackson, 19 (Pictured right, below), and Lawrence Paul Mayo, 19 (Pictured Far Right), are being sought by County police for raping a 13-year-old girl in the woods near Chris Ct. in Randallstown.

Speaking of wanted men, police have released a sketch of a man wanted for shooting woman in the Brookeshire Hotel in the 100 block of East Lombard St. during a suspected robbery attempt.

Me-ow, the City Fraternal Order of Police took their claws out recently, describing the Police administration as being "outdated" and "ineffective", among other choice comments.

The internet can breath a collective sigh of relief, as case of the video-taped assault and robbery of an intoxicated man on St. Patrick's day has come closer to a conclusion. Aaron Parsons, 20, the man identified by several people as having thrown a punch during the incident received one year in jail. Two others, Deangelo Carter, 19, and Shayona Davis, 20, were both sentenced to probation. Shatia Baldwin, 21, awaits sentencing.

The three men charged in the fatal shooting of 12-year-old Sean Johnson have plead not guilty. 21-year-old Antwan Mosely, 17-year-old Derrick Brown, and 29-year-old Danyae Robinson are facing an August trial date for the mistaken-identity murder.

If criminals weren't aware they could sell any car to a scrap yard with no identification or papers showing ownership, they sure know now. 

The man shot this past weekend in the 4900 block of Gunther St. in Parkville has been identified as 31-year-old Derrick Gamble. Gamble had been arrested for Attempted Murder twice, having received a conviction related to the second Att. Murder charge. Gamble was also a convicted drug dealer.

50 years in prison for Robert T. Buck, 48, convicted of the 2010 murder of Dundalk resident Leslie Jo Rasmussen.

A round-up of crime in the County includes racist graffiti in Lutherville, yet another armed robbery at the supposedly lucky 7-11 on Liberty Rd., a Dundalk Dunkin Doughnuts gets knocked over, a rash of burglaries in the Owings Mills/Reisterstown area, and an uptick in armed robberies in Catosville.

Amid a scandal AAC police Chief James Teare has stepped down in disgrace to avoid any further criminal investigation.

Finally, 24 years in the Federal pen for heroin wholesaler Charles Leonard Galloway, 46. Galloway was convicted of dealing kilogram amounts of heroin while working with the Mexican Cartels.

The article you linked for the AAC chief of police actually talks about him covering for County Executive John Leopold for "parking lot sex and security detail misuse" - your comment is a little misleading.
