Morgan State athlete charged with making false police report

A Morgan State University basketball player who told police he was shot during an attempted robbery has been arrested and charged with making a false police report.

Anton Jenifer, 24, an undergraduate who lives in the 4200 block of Loch Raven Blvd., was arrested Wednesday night by Morgan State police and processed at Central Booking and Intake Center, said Agent Martin Bartness, a city police spokesman. He said Jenifer also was charged with illegal possession of a handgun.

Tuesday night at Good Samaritan Hospital, Jenifer told police he was entering his apartment about 9 p.m. when a gunman demanded money and then shot him in the right foot, Bartness said. After noticing inconsistencies in the story, police obtained a search warrant for the dwelling and seized a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun and a pair of pants with an apparent bullet hole in one pant leg and apparent gunshot residue in a pocket, Bartness said.

Parents file appeal over school closure

Parents of pupils at Mildred Monroe Elementary School, in the 1600 block of Guilford Ave., filed an appeal yesterday with the state over the city school board's decision to close the school during the summer.

Parents said board members relied on flawed data and did not properly publicize meetings on the planned closing. They said they also are worried that programs at Mildred Monroe will be lost if their children are transferred to Dallas F. Nicholas Sr. Elementary School, five blocks north in the 200 block of E. 21st St.

The school board has 23 days to respond to the filing. After that, the state will hold an administrative hearing.
