Robbery try earns man 25 years

A man convicted in an armed robbery attempt last year in the Johnston Square neighborhood was sentenced yesterday to 25 years in prison, the first five to be served without parole.

In August, a city jury convicted Jerome Holloway, 36, of the 2500 block of W. Fayette St. of attempted robbery and illegal possession of a handgun. Circuit Judge M. Brooke Murdock pronounced sentence.

Prosecutors said that on Nov. 1, Holloway approached a driver at about 2 a.m. at Greenmount Avenue and Preston Street, got in the car, showed a handgun and demanded money. The driver sped off and crashed, at which time Holloway fled. Police arrested Holloway after the victim provided a detailed description.

Shooting victim, 19, dies

A Northwest Baltimore man who was shot in a liquor store Thursday night died early the next day at Sinai Hospital, police said. Two other men who were also shot survived.

No arrest had been made, and police had not determined the motive in the city's 244th homicide.

Police said Qur'ron Holloway, 19, of the 4700 block of Park Heights Ave. in Pimlico, was inside Lowell Liquors in the 3100 block of Woodland Ave. shortly before midnight Oct. 18 when he and two other men were shot by at least one gunman.

Police said Holloway and a second victim, 20, were found in the store by police responding to the shooting. The third man, 29, was found inside a nearby house.

All three were taken to Sinai Hospital, where Holloway died at 9:35 a.m. Oct. 19.

Attorney is indicted in real estate scheme

A grand jury has indicted a Harford County lawyer who is accused of collaborating in the theft of $1.6 million in a real estate scheme, the county state's attorney said.

Harold J. Tulley of Forest Hill is accused of conspiring with Michael P. Luby to swindle friends and clients in a real estate scheme involving property in Maryland and Virginia, said State's Attorney Joseph I. Cassilly.

Tulley, 67, faces eight counts of conspiracy to commit theft, eight counts of being an accessory in hindrance of public justice and four other charges, according to court documents.

Tulley is accused of aiding Luby, who was indicted in March on 54 counts that included theft, forgery and embezzlement. Luby was arrested five months later in Dover, Vt., and is being held at the Harford County Detention Center after being denied bail. Investigators have accused Luby of running a pyramid scheme to dupe the elderly.

Tulley was indicted last week and surrendered to county sheriff's deputies two days later, Cassilly said. He was released after posting $50,000 bond.
