A Jeep crashed into a tax preparation office Saturday at 36th Street and Falls Road in Hampden, pinning a pedestrian to the road and sending a wave of glass over people inside, according to witnesses. Tom Hanlon, 63, was inside getting his paperwork done before Monday's filing deadline. “It was like a bomb went off,” he said. “Glass flew past me 30 feet.” Hanlon said he went outside and the driver of the Jeep seemed dazed. People warned him not to back up because another man was trapped underneath the SUV, he added.

As Baltimore's mayor on Wednesday consoled the family of a hospital worker used as a human shield during a gang shooting downtown, elected officials and community activists called on the city to do more to combat gang violence. The killing of Brandon Finney, a 25-year-old Maryland Shock Trauma Center technician, has rattled the city. He was waiting to catch a bus home after working a night shift Sunday when, police say, members of the Black Guerrilla Family targeted a rival Bloods member, who pulled Finney in front of him. Both died.

The land along the northern edge of the Patapsco serves as the front porch to a bejeweled coastline, the product of a re-making of Baltimore's Inner Harbor in a manner and to a degree that could have hardly been imagined a generation ago. And then, several blocks north, in the once commercially vibrant area of Waverly, standing in considerable contrast, there is McKenzie Elliott's front porch. When a three-year-old is shot to death while merely indulging in the act of sitting on her own front porch on a summer afternoon, the magnificence and grandeur of the renewal of our city is dimmed and diminished.

The state's highest court has upheld the murder and related convictions of a Dundalk man who police said was involved in a 2009 drug deal gone awry and fatally shot a bystander as she was speaking with relatives who had returned from church. In a decision issued Tuesday, a unanimous Court of Appeals rejected all of Warren Jerome Yates' claims, including that Baltimore County prosecutors lacked evidence to prove he committed a second-degree felony murder. Yates was convicted in 2009 of that, along with weapons, drug and assault charges, and sentenced to a total of 75 years in prison.

The family of a transgender woman who was attacked in a Baltimore County McDonald's last week thanked the woman who stepped in and tried to help, as more than a hundred supporters gathered at the Rosedale restaurant Monday night. The rally drew together representatives of transgender, civil-rights and faith-based communities in a call to action to stop violence against all people.
