City police identified the man shot and killed by Baltimore County detectives Tuesday, as the union representing parole and probation agents expressed concern that the attempted arrest in the agency's parking lot put members of the public in danger. Christopher Shelton, 39, left an appointment with his probation agent and was fatally shot after pointing a .50-caliber handgun at two county officers who were investigating an armed robbery, police said. Shelton had served two terms in prison for armed robbery, most recently a 2000 conviction in Baltimore County that was apparently cut short by a three-judge panel, according to records.

After 13 years of experience in Maryland real estate, David Orso decided to use his skills to better equip those entering the housing market by writing a book. That this effort would also become a way to pay tribute to his wife was a heartbreaking coincidence. The book, "Step Inside: The Unfiltered Truth About Listing and Selling Your Home," reveals insider advice on finding the best agent, listing and pricing a home, roles of listing agents, and how to go from listed to sold smoothly.

The article "Ethics classes for Secret Service" (May 1) leaves one astonished and livid. I'm sure that the great majority of Secret Service employees don't need training in ethical behavior, having had ethical parents, educators, relatives and close friends from birth until they were hired by the Secret Service. If as adults they have not digested what ethical behavior is all about, we should examine the hiring process carefully in our assessment of what to do about the problem, not just send them to Johns Hopkins ethics classes.

Secret Service director Julia A. Pierson did herself no favors this week when she appeared before a House subcommittee to explain why her agency so badly bungled the job of protecting the president. There's no excuse for the repeated lapses in security that put the president's life at risk, nor for the agency's attempts to hide the seriousness of the incidents afterward. Ms. Pierson finally acknowledged that today when she submitted her resignation as head of the agency. In the days leading up to her departure, Ms. Pierson had promised a thorough internal investigation of the matter, but that's not good enough.

It starts at the top Joseph Schwerdt Sun Sentinel First of all, Nick Saban questioning the integrity of sports agent rings hollow in South Florida, where four years ago he stared stone-faced at the Miami Dolphins' fan base and flatly said: "I'm not gonna be the Alabama coach." Right. But we digress. Who has ruined college sports? Agents. Coaches. Athletic directors. School presidents. Boosters. Networks. And others. Slice up the blame pie and give each an equal piece.

Whit MacCuaig took off work to fight his $252 ticket for double-parking in front of his Gough Street rowhouse. He went to court Thursday dressed in a suit and armed with photographs and a letter from a city councilman pleading for leniency. Turns out, he didn't really have to go to court at all. District Judge Charles A. Chiapparelli found MacCuaig not guilty before he could fully rise from the gallery bench, a scene played out over and over again during the 9 a.m. docket in Room 6 at the John R. Hargrove courthouse on South Baltimore's Patapsco Avenue.

As part of their continuing search to add depth and improve their roster, the Orioles have had multiple, face-to-face meetings with the representatives for pitcher Kevin Correia and outfielder Nate Schierholtz, according to an industry source. The 32-year-old Correia was 12-11 with a 4.21 ERA in 32 games (28 starts) for the Pittsburgh Pirates, for whom he was an All-Star in 2011. He's made at least 26 starts in each of the last four seasons. Over his 10-year career, Correia is 60-65 with a 4.54 ERA with the Giants, Padres and Pirates.

As they rushed toward a suburban Utah home with guns drawn, agents knew they were on to a significant figure in the Silk Road online drug bazaar - a major cocaine dealer, perhaps. Message boards on Silk Road - the world's most popular online drug market - had been buzzing about the sale that triggered this bust. Users of the encrypted website advertised drugs, forged documents and hacking tools for sale through seemingly anonymous transactions, but a kilo of pure Peruvian cocaine was something special.

The Orioles have, for all intents and purposes, completed deals with all of their arbitration-eligible players, agreeing to terms Saturday afternoon with the final one, right-handed reliever Darren O'Day on a two-year extension worth a guaranteed $5.8 million. The Orioles said the deal is not yet completed, but they are nearing a multiyear extension with O'Day, who was 7-1 with a 2.28 ERA in 69 games last year. “It is something he asked us to explore during the course of negotiations for a one-year deal and we are taking a look at it ... and there is work to be done,” Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said.

A recent raid at a Catonsville apartment complex has raised concerns that federal immigration agents are using Maryland motor vehicle data to locate illegal immigrants, potentially undermining a state initiative to ensure that drivers are ready for the road regardless of their citizenship status. Residents of the Melvin Park Apartments said Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents pulled over several vehicles within a few blocks of the complex last month and asked for the registered owners by name.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Orioles have signed Cuban right-hander Lazaro Leyva to an international free-agent contract, according to an industry source. The deal is pending a physical and age verification, the latter of which could take weeks. Leyva received a $725,000 signing bonus, according to CBS Sports, which first reported the deal. The 20-year-old is the third Cuban player the Orioles have signed under executive vice president Dan Duquette. They signed outfielder Henry Urrutia to a $778,500 bonus in 2012 and inked outfielder Dariel Alvarez to an $800,000 bonus last year.

DEA Special Agent in Charge Gary Tuggle confirmed his office was also involved, but also declined to say why or what business or individual was being investigated.

With the free agent market pretty much picked through, the Ravens' best avenue to make a significant upgrade at cornerback is via a training-camp trade. Completing one, however, is complicated by several factors. Cornerback has become a critical position in the pass-happy NFL and the demand clearly exceeds the supply. Several teams, including the Ravens, New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys, could use cornerback help, but there are not a whole lot of teams interested in parting with theirs.

Thinking ahead isn't an option for an undrafted free agent in training camp, especially one competing with a veteran for a team's sole punting job. Ravens undrafted rookie punter Richie Leone began working toward an NFL punting job in college. He kicked and played quarterback at Roswell High in Georgia, and while at the University of Houston began a pro-style training regimen under a former NFL special teams coach. So if he can't unseat incumbent punter Sam Koch during the preseason, Leone will have an even more refined left foot to take elsewhere in search of an NFL role.

Looks like the Orioles will make another move today. The agent for catcher Steve Clevenger tweeted this morning that his client was headed back to Baltimore to join the Orioles. Clevenger has been raking at Triple-A, hitting .328 in 36 games, so in one sense this isn't a surprise. However, Clevenger played in one of the Tides' games in Friday's doubleheader and Norfolk has a doubleheader again today. So losing a catcher can't be ideal for the Tides. Plus, the Orioles only have two more games remaining before the All-Star break.

WASHINGTON -- The FBI will temporarily send 50 additional agents to Maryland in coming weeks as part of a major shake-up at FBI headquarters that eventually will move 600 agents from desk jobs to field assignments in the nation's cities, FBI Director Louis J. Freeh said yesterday.In a blunt assessment of the agency's failings, Mr. Freeh said the FBI for years has "been top-heavy with supervisors and unnecessary levels of review and decision-making" that it can't afford in the face of budget cuts that have frozen the hiring of agents until 1996.

The founder of an embattled Sparks-based insurance company appears to have been plotting to kill a Delaware judge overseeing the liquidation of his business, recording himself on a trip to scout out his targets and acquiring a cache of weapons, federal authorities allege in court filings. Jeffrey B. Cohen, 39, of Reisterstown was arrested last month after he was indicted on charges that he schemed to make it appear that his company, Indemnity Insurance Corp., which insured bars and nightclubs, had millions of dollars in cash it did not possess.

BOSTON  -  Orioles executive director of international recruiting Fred Ferreira plucked Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez from the Mexican League, signed him to a minor league free-agent deal and saw him blossom into a major league starting pitcher. Now he hopes another pitcher - ironically, one with the same name - can reach the same heights. The Orioles have signed pitcher Miguel Gonzalez, an 18-year-old right-hander from the Dominican Republic, to an international free-agent deal.
