Eastern District

Robbery try/shooting: A man and woman were walking in the 600 block of N. Rose St. about 1 a.m. Wednesday when two men, one with a handgun, demanded their money. When the couple turned to flee, the gunman fired at least two shots, striking the male in both legs. He was in good condition yesterday at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The woman was not injured and the suspects fled without taking any property or money.

Southwestern District

Shooting: A man was shot several times by an unknown assailant in the first block of S. Catherine St. on Wednesday night and a stray bullet struck a 41-year-old female bystander in an arm. The man was in critical condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center yesterday and the woman was released from an area hospital.

Western District

Shooting: A man was standing in the 2700 block of Pennsylvania Ave. about 8 p.m. Wednesday when another man approached and shot him in the left foot. The victim was treated at University of Maryland Medical Center.

For the Record

Man sentenced in killing: Charles Anthony Thomas, 30, was sentenced to 65 years in prison yesterday by Baltimore Circuit Judge John Prevas after a jury found him guilty of second-degree murder in the Nov. 19, 1996, slaying of Steven Bowers, an employee of the Giant store in the 5100 block of Sinclair Lane. Thomas was detained in the store office as a suspected shoplifter when he disarmed security officer Terrence Callahan and shot him and Bowers. Bowers died at the scene and Callahan survived. Thomas was arrested the next day in a house in the 1400 block of Edison Highway. Callahan's .38-caliber revolver was found in the Baltimore Cemetery in the 1900 block of N. Rose St.
