Anne Arundel County police say a prank that turned serious on Thursday resulted in one man being sent to the hospital for a gunshot wound - and another charged with second-degree assault. Police said they were called around 3:50 a.m. to a home in the 1300 block of Burton River Road in the Lothian area, where they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the lower torso. He did not have life-threatening injuries and was taken to Prince George's Hospital, police said. Police said that after collecting evidence and interviewing witnesses they determined that several people at the house all knew each other, and the victim, a 21-year-old man from Edgewater, was asleep when another man, apparently attempting to pull a prank, grabbed a .40 caliber handgun, which police said he believed to be a BB gun, and fired one round at the victim while he slept, striking him in the buttocks area.

One of the first traits police recruiters ought to look for in their candidates is empathy. After all, at the heart of law enforcement is understanding the behavior of human beings and without some insight into what motivates their actions - for good or ill - it would be impossible to gain their trust or anticipate their conflicts, let alone protect and serve them. That's one of the reasons it's so disappointing to read that the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 70 which represents police officers in Anne Arundel County, has chosen to donate $1,070 to an online defense fund for Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown, an incident that has drawn national attention and continues to stir rioting and protests in that St. Louis suburb.

The officer involved in the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., is getting support from the Anne Arundel County police union. The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 70, the union that represents officers in Anne Arundel, has donated $1,070 to an online defense fund for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. That's the largest donation listed for the campaign on the website gofundme.com. O'Brien Atkinson, an Anne Arundel County police officer and president of the lodge, said his members wanted to send money to help feed police officers working long shifts during the protests and unrest that have erupted since Wilson shot Brown on Aug. 9. But the national FOP suggested contributing to the legal defense fund instead.
