Man, 27, shot outside apartment complex


BALTIMORE -- A 27-year-old man was shot in the head, neck and shoulder early yesterday near the front door of an apartment complex on Eutaw Place. He was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was in stable condition last night.

Police said they had no suspects in the 3:15 a.m. shooting of Eugene Ambrose of New York. He was staying in the 1700 block of Eutaw Place.

A person who saw him bleeding in the front entrance hailed a passing patrol officer. Police said the first-floor apartment door was open, and inside they found 11 bags of suspected heroin and 10 vials of suspected crack cocaine.

Acid spills from truck, closing road for 5 hours



UPPER MARLBORO -- A tractor-trailer loaded with forklift batteries spilled sulfuric acid onto U.S. 301 between Bowie and Upper Marlboro in Prince George's County yesterday afternoon, shutting the highway for more than five hours.

Authorities said the truck jackknifed as its driver tried to avoid hitting a car that had pulled out of Swanson Road onto the highway about 12:50 p.m.

Neither driver was hurt, but when the truck's load shifted, some of the sulfuric acid from its 41,000-pound load of batteries leaked into the truck, and a small amount spilled onto the highway, said Capt. Victor Stagnaro, spokesman for the Prince George's County Fire Department.
