Kevin Simpson
Four people were killed over the weekend, making 10 homicides in the first eight days of June. Per Justin Fenton, two have been ID'd: Ernest Barnes Jr., 24, was killed in the 2000 block of Prior Ave. and Jeffrey Ringgold, 29, was killed on Richwood Ave. Another as-yet-unidentified person was killed in the 2400 block of East Oliver Street, and on Friday afternoon a woman was found dead in the 3400 block of Reisterstown Road.

In case you missed it, Friday police arrested one Kevin Simpson,* who allegedly murdered 15-year-old Oscar Torres while robbing him and then later struck a minivan while trying to escape police (who were of course not high-speed chasing him at all), killing 12-year-old Shanizya Taft.

AAC police caught a guy with a neck tattoo connected with 30+ car burglaries in Glen Burnie. Baltimore police have basically given up on even bothering to catch car burglars, it seems. Also in AAC, a burgled church.

More than 40 people were arrested in drug raids in St. Mary's County.
