City police released surveillance camera stills that they believe show two suspects involved in the Dec. 14 robbery-shooting of a Northeast Baltimore barber shop employee.  The victim, who was listed in critical condition, is expected to survive, but lost his eye in surgery and also suffered an injury to one of his hands. The shooting occurred in the 2200 block of Harford Road, at the Up Close barber shop. "We're looking for anyone that might have been in the area," Guglielmi said.

City police were investigating a shooting Monday afternoon at the Old Town Mall, the blighted outdoor shopping center that officials have pledged to redevelop. The shooting was reported at around 1:30 p.m., and the police said a man had been shot in the leg. At the scene, an overturned bicycle lay near a barber shop at the mall's east end, and police shut down Monument Street as an extension of the crime scene. A man was handcuffed and sitting on a curb inside the crime scene tape, while two blocks south officers placed another handcuffed man into a squad car and drove away.

The two women came barreling down the street, wailing as they sprinted over the downtown light rail tracks and towards the crime scene in front of a barber shop. "Please tell me [my brother's] not shot," one shouted, holding a cell phone. "Please tell me no. " A gruff police commander walked over. "How do you know he's been shot? We don't even know who it is," he said. After catching her breath, the woman replied, "It was on Facebook. " Just before 5 p.m. Saturday, police found a man shot several times inside the Focal Point barber shop in the 200 block of W. Saratoga St. Police identified the victim Sunday as Dwight Taylor, 25, confirming the women's fears.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Steve Coburn proudly calls himself a working man, and he'll tell you upfront that he was insulted when a rich stable owner offered him millions of dollars for the racehorse who'd eaten cookies from his hand as a gangly 3-month-old. "Somebody who's got that much money, just to think they can step in and buy something people have worked so hard to get to?" Coburn said. "To me, that was a slap in the face. The no was easy. Not just 'no,' but 'hell no.'" It might seem strange, the idea of a populist hero as clear favorite in Saturday's Kentucky Derby , a race that fires the dreams of multi-millionaire horsemen around the world.

Last week I took my father, who is 102 years old, to Syle's Barber Shop for his monthly haircut as I have done for the past five years. The month before I could not get his wheelchair up the two steps into the shop so Mark Slye cut his hair outside in front of the shop. When we arrived last week, Mark met us at the door and informed us he had built a special ramp so Dad could get into the shop. I just wanted to share to people in Laurel what a kind gesture and much-appreciated kindness this was. Betty Fulton West Laurel

A shave and a haircut of yesteryear cost the proverbial two bits, 25 cents. A shave alone at The Old Bank Barbers, a soon-to-open barber shop on The Avenue in Hampden, will cost $25. It won't be any old shave, though. Owner Daniel Wells promises an old-fashioned, full-face, straight-edge shave, complete with hot lather, in a leather chair with a headrest that leans back. "It's an old-school barber shop with the tile floors," said Wells, who hopes to open this month at 1100 W. 36th St., the former site of Sixteen Tons, a men's clothing store.

Brian Street stepped outside the barber shop where he works Monday at the mostly abandoned Old Town Mall to see a crowd of people surveying the corridor and discussing plans to demolish some of the empty buildings. A group of officials, including Gov. Martin O'Malley and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, came to the 16-acre outdoor mall to announce a $300,000 investment to prepare the site for re-development. In all, the state's Strategic Demolition and Smart Growth Impact Fund will provide $5 million for 13 revitalization projects across Maryland.

What a relief "Looking" is getting another season. Because while "Looking Glass" satisfyingly hints at where Patrick, Dom and Agustin's lives might be going, nothing feels totally finished. Every episode of "Looking" has followed much the same pattern, with forward-leaning final scenes pushing viewers toward what's next. What an apt way to close out the season, especially given how often characters in "Looking" keep scanning for the future as well. What an apt episode name too, with its clear allusion to "Alice in Wonderland.
