Bicycle rider shot near park with BB gun

September 04, 1996

A Pasadena man was shot in the wrist with a BB gun Saturday as he rode his bicycle just outside Lake Waterford Park, county police said.

Wesley Redmond, 29, of the 8200 block of Baltimore Annapolis Blvd., told police he was riding north along Route 648 about 4 p.m. when he heard a pop and felt a stinging sensation in his left wrist.

Redmond looked down and saw blood dripping from his hand. He rode home, and his wife took him to Anne Arundel Medical Center, where police interviewed him.

Officers searched the area where the incident took place but found nothing. Redmond was treated at the hospital and released.

Two students compete in Boston U. event

Amanda L. Miracle and Robert Pope of Pasadena were among nearly 300 students who participated recently in Peak Performance, a vehicle-design competition sponsored by Boston University's College of Engineering. High school students from the Northeast competed in two-member teams for partial scholarships to Boston University.

Participants were required to design and build small, self-powered vehicles that could climb a hill and defend the summit against another vehicle approaching from the other side. The vehicle closest to the center mark after 20 seconds won the match.

Miracle, a student at Northeast High School, is the daughter of Henry and Rosemary Urquiza. Pope attends Chesapeake High School and is the son of John and Teresa Pope.
