19-year-old driver dies after `road rage' incident ends in gunfire

A Northeast Baltimore man died yesterday at Johns Hopkins Hospital after being shot in the head during what police described as "the worst-type scenario of road rage." No arrest had been made.

Police spokesman Kevin Enright said Carl P. Sneed, 19, of the 4800 block of Richard Ave. was driving a 1993 Nissan Pathfinder and stopped for a red light about 12:50 a.m. when the driver of a vehicle behind him became impatient and passed. Enright said Sneed and the other driver exchanged words before both vehicles were again abreast of each other minutes later in the 1200 block of E. 43rd St.

There, Enright said, the driver of the other car fired two shots from a handgun, hitting Sneed in the head and causing Sneed's vehicle to strike a utility pole. He died about 4 p.m. Two passengers in Sneed's car were unhurt, police said.

Coast Guard bark due for Inner Harbor stop

The U.S. Coast Guard's Eagle, a 295-foot, three-masted bark with more than 20,000 square feet of sail, is scheduled to dock at the Inner Harbor on Friday afternoon and be open for public tours beginning Saturday.

The ship, built in Germany in 1936 for the German navy, was given to the United States in 1946 as war reparation. Based in New London, Conn., the Eagle has 12 officers and a crew of 36, and serves as a training vessel for cadets at the Coast Guard Academy. No cadets will be on board during the four-day visit.

It will be open to visitors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday and Monday before going into drydock at the Curtis Bay Coast Guard yard for six months of maintenance work.
