Anne Arundel County police say that on Tuesday, Arthur Tyler Felton used a box cutter to steal a cell phone and an MP3 player from a Sears in the Annapolis Mall, then briefly carjacked a woman in the parking lot in a failed bid to escape. This is the same Arthur Tyler Felton who in 1991 fatally shot 6-year-old Tiffany Smith in the head during a gunfight with a rival in West Baltimore's Walbrook neighborhood. The shooting of the elementary school student shocked a city, sparked a campaign to rebuild streets lined with vacant rowhouses, focused police attention on gangs, guns and drugs, and prompted residents to create a memorial in the girl's honor.

Arthur Tyler Felton, who served more than 14 years in prison for killing a 6-year-old girl in Baltimore in 1991, was sentenced Monday to serve 12 years in prison for a carjacking outside the Annapolis Mall. Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Paul A. Hackner suspended the rest of a 30-year sentence in favor of five years' probation, said a spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office. Because Felton, 38, is a repeat violent offender, he would have to serve 10 years without the possibility of parole.
