* SHOOTING: Western District -- A 61-year-old resident of the 900 block of N. Franklintown Road was listed in poor condition at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center after being shot at least four times by one of two men in an alley behind the 2600 block of Edmondson Ave. after one of them asked him for a cigarette. When the victim refused to comply, one of the men pulled out a handgun and shot the victim in the arm, leg, hand and upper torso. Police believe the men intended to rob the victim before he was shot.


* ROBBERY: White Marsh Precinct -- A motorist was robbed of more than $100 Wednesday afternoon on Mohr's Lane near a wooden bridge when he went to aid another motorist whose vehicle appeared to be disabled. When the victim approached the white pickup truck, the driver pulled out a .38 caliber revolver and took his money. The gunman sped off in his pickup.


* ROBBERY/ARREST: Edgewood -- A 33-year-old Edgewood man was arrested Wednesday and charged with the armed robbery of Little Caesar's Pizza shop in the 2200 block of Hanson Road, Edgewood late Tuesday night. Police said a man entered the shop around 11 p.m. and asked for change before pulling out a silver-plated semi-automatic handgun and ordering an employee to give him the contents of the cash register. The gunman fled on foot. After receiving information about a suspect in the case a few hours after the robbery, police, armed with a warrant, entered a home in the 600 block of Sequoia Drive and arrested Michael Benjamin Bowen, of that address. In addition to armed robbery, Mr. Bowen was charged with robbery with a deadly weapon and using a handgun in the commission of a felony. Mr. Bowen was being held at the county Detention Center in lieu of $50,000 bail pending a bail review hearing Friday before a District Court judge.
