Disparate youth

Crime Beat blog weekend recap: 8 shot in Baltimore over the weekend, incl 18-yr-old girl and 2 outside Club Mirage *

Police have released security footage of two ppl running from the area of Belair-Edison where Peter Marvit was killed 
Police believe the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Tashawna Jones in Harwood was a domestic incident *

Also Fenton revisits Oliver a decade after the Dawson family * was burned up in their home for "snitching" on neighborhood drug dealers. .. speaking of Moltov cocktails, I wonder what became of Edna McAbier, who went into witness protection after thugs threw some down her chimney in Harwood?

A police car responding to a shooting on Jack St. struck and killed a pedestrian,* Leondionas Dias Perez, on E. Patapsco Ave

"For shooting at three Baltimore City police officers and striking one, Gerry Gough, 24, pled guilty on Friday to attempted first-degree murder, two counts of attempted second-degree murder, and a handgun violation. The plea agreement calls for a sentence of life in prison with all but 40 years suspended, followed by three years of probation."


The Brew with the Ivy bookshop reviews three Baltimore-related social-history and urban planning tomes.

Did you know the Perkins and Latrobe projects used to be "white" public housing? Interesting presentation from the ACLU on the history of Baltimore's segregated public housing and the issues facing Cherry Hill and Westport.

Costa wasn't the one murdered I don't believe. He survived. Morrow was the one that was killed.

Minor correction to your sidebar. #173, Merv Douglas, wasn't killed in the 2800 block of N Charles but rather in the 2300 block.
