Carjacking: A motorist, 26, was stopped in the 2600 block of E. Fairmount Ave. about 7 p.m. Saturday when two men, one armed with a handgun, forced him from his green 1996 Jeep Cherokee with tags M318644 and drove away.

Burglary/arrest: A man, 63, was trying to break into a freight delivery company in the 300 block of North Point Road about 11: 30 p.m. Saturday when he was arrested by Officer Kristie Koonce.

Shooting: A male, 17, was attending a cookout behind an apartment building in the 2700 block of Spelman Road in Cherry Hill about 3: 10 p.m. yesterday when a man with whom he had a continuing dispute pulled a handgun and shot him in the abdomen and left hip. Sgt. Stephen Nalewajko, of the district's major case squad, said the gunman escaped. He said the victim was in stable condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Confidence scheme: A couple approached a woman, 75, Saturday near her Southwest Baltimore home and told her that if she withdrew money from her bank account as a sign of good faith, they would share with her a large sum of money they had recently found.
