Call of the Maul

A man was stabbed to death in the 200 block of N. Payson Street* after getting into an argument with some people, his death was homicide #20.

Three people are dead after a shooting at the Columbia Mall in HoCo,* one of the dead is believed to be the shooter. Predictably the story is immediately national news and a Wall Street Journal news alert, even. The victims have been ID'd* as Brianna Benlolo, 21 and Tyler Johnson, 25. The gunman has been tentatively ID'd by police but not publicly identified, and police say that in addition to a shotgun and bullets he was toting crude explosives.*

The lead detective in the Phylicia Barnes case is facing trial next week for assault and burglary.*

Remember the sad story of Myra Casom, a retired Glen Burnie school teacher shot in a parking lot? Police now say the shooting was not random and was likely someone who knew her.
