Two teen-agers injured by gunfire on Annapolis street

A gunfight that broke out early yesterday in Annapolis between occupants of a car and pedestrians sent two teen-agers to the hospital, police reported.

Eugene Martin, 19, and Mario Kaskins, 19, both of Annapolis, were taken to Anne Arundel Medical Center for treatment of injuries suffered in the shooting, which occurred shortly after midnight in the 1800 block of Bowman Court, Annapolis police said. Martin was shot in the arm and Kaskins was shot in the ankle, police said.

Several vehicles and apartments were struck by stray bullets. Police were investigating the incident yesterday. Officials knew of no motive for the shooting and had made no arrests last night.

Council considers limits on public testimony

A measure that would eliminate public testimony before regular council meetings is among the items up for public comment at a hearing tomorrow night before the Annapolis city council.

The bill, introduced by Mayor Ellen O. Moyer, would move the "petitions, reports and communications" item on council agendas - which allows public comment on any subject - to the public hearing agenda. Public comment would be allowed at regular council meetings only after a majority vote of the council.

Other items up for public comment tomorrow are future leases of City Dock to Annapolis Boat Shows Inc. and the lease of the McNasby property to Eastport Historical Committee Inc.

The hearing will be held at 7 p.m. at City Hall on Duke of Gloucester Street.
