Baltimore: Homicides

Woman, 2 men die in weekend violence

A woman in her mid-30s was fatally stabbed at 9:20 last night on a street in the city's Upton community, police said. Police found the woman lying in the 1100 block of Druid Hill Ave., bleeding from a stab wound. The woman, whose name was withheld, died at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Howard County: Ellicott City

High school field marred by vandals

Howard County police are seeking vandals who painted a 7-foot- long swastika on the football field at Mount Hebron High School in Ellicott City between Friday night and early Saturday, Howard County police said. Vandals also broke at least 16 school windows, said Sgt. Thomas Claxton. The swastika was removed by school employees Saturday before girls' lacrosse teams from Pennsylvania and New Jersey arrived to play in a tournament hosted by Mount Hebron. A foul-line pole and a sign on the school's baseball field also were destroyed, police said. Claxton, a county police watch commander, said there was no estimate of damage to the building and grounds and that anyone with information should call police at 410-313-3200.
