Police Blotter is a sampling of crimes from police reports in Baltimore and Baltimore County.



Handgun arrest -- Police were in the 2200 block of Guilford Ave. yesterday afternoon investigating gang-related incidents when they heard at least one gunshot and observed an armed man running down a nearby street. Police chased and caught the man and seized a .45-caliber Colt revolver. Arrested and charged with gun possession was Bryant M. Williams, 23, of the 5400 block of Todd Ave. The gun was being examined to see if it had been used in any crimes or reported stolen.


Shooting -- Police were seeking at least two people who fired several shots at one another in the 900 block of N. Kenwood Ave. about 7:15 p.m. Monday. No one was struck, but four vehicles parked on the street were hit and one bullet struck a house. Recovered at the scene were at least 40 shell casings or unspent rounds from at least two semiautomatic handguns.


Shooting -- A homeless 38-year-old woman remained in critical condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center after she was shot multiple times in the first block of S. Hilton St. about 8 a.m. Saturday. Homeless people sleeping in the area told police they were awakened by gunshots and found the woman on the ground nearby. No arrest had been made, and police were without a motive. Anyone with information was urged to call the district detective unit at 410-396-2488.

Burglary -- Someone entered the backyard of a house in the 8500 block of Kingstree Road about 1 p.m. Monday, left a bicycle that apparently had been stolen elsewhere and rode off on a blue Mongoose bicycle with yellow shock absorbers. The second bicycle was valued at $500.


Robberies -- Three men and a woman, all in their early to mid-20s, were getting out of a car parked behind an apartment building in the 6300 block of Holly Lane about 3:30 a.m. Sunday when two gunmen ordered them to the ground. After robbing the victims of two cell phones, their wallets, cigarettes and $100, the gunmen ordered them back into the car and fled on foot.


Robbery -- A man walked into a CVS Store in the 11600 block of Reisterstown Road about 1:30 a.m. Monday, approached a female cashier and said, "Do you want to die?" The man then removed an undisclosed sum of money from the cash register and fled. No weapon was displayed.
