Seven people - including a 15-year-old boy who was killed - were shot in West Baltimore on Saturday night as police grapple with a recent wave of shootings with multiple victims. As of Sunday, nonfatal shootings were up in Baltimore by about 23 percent over the same time last year, according to data available through the city's website. Recent weeks have been marked with what Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts dubbed "cluster" shootings, including a quadruple shooting in Pigtown that killed two and a triple shooting in East Baltimore that injured a 7-year-old boy. "Seven people shot in a cluster is outrageous for the city and it's unacceptable for us as a whole," Batts said near the scene shortly after Saturday night's shooting, which happened in the 1500 block of W. Fayette St. Police said Deshaun Jones, who turned 15 last month, was killed, while six adults were expected to survive their gunshot wounds.

Ray Haysbert engineered a leveraged buyout before most people knew what it was. With a ton of debt and an ounce of equity, he bought Baltimore-based Parks Sausage from an affiliate of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1980, presaging the leveraged buyout craze of the 1980s and today's massive "private equity" deals. In corporate financing, as in other things, Raymond V. Haysbert Sr. was an outlier. As Parks' right-hand man in the 1950s, he helped build the company into a regional brand.

Half a century ago, a nearby cluster of stars appeared to astronomers as a single glowing ball of gas. As recently as 15 years ago, scientists realized it was in fact a cluster of stars but were convinced they all must have formed at the same time and with the same composition. Now astronomers at Baltimore's Space Telescope Science Institute have found evidence that one cluster may actually be two, one a million years older than the other, in the process of merging. The clusters are 170,000 light years from Earth in an area known as the Tarantula Nebula.

After visiting schools in Maryland and Pennsylvania, a Carroll committee wants to model the county's next two high schools after Howard County's River Hill High School.The Clarksville school, which opened in 1994, groups similar subjects in designated areas called "clusters," instead of separating academic departments. The idea is to more fully integrate the school curriculum so students can see the natural connections between subjects."Integration is a way of tying learning together, so kids see subject areas as less isolated and part of the real world," said Kathleen Sanner, a Carroll school facility planner and a member of the school board-appointed committee charged with writing the specifications for the two new high schools.

Neighbors of Fort Detrick were not diagnosed with cancer in greater numbers than the broader population of Frederick County during the period for which data are available, state health officials told the community Monday. But local activists said the state's analysis does not capture the history of cancer around the Army base because it does not take into account cases before 1992, when the state began compiling its cancer registry. Clifford Mitchell of the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said cases recorded in the Maryland Cancer Registry from 1992-2008 within two miles of Fort Detrick showed no statistically significant increase in any type of cancer as compared to the rest of the county.

The Next Things in tech tools are born in rooms such as this one at the American Can Company in Canton, amid laptops, Starbucks cups and Aquafina bottles, amid 20- and 30-somethings working in groups or alone to the sounds of keystrokes and soft conversation. This is the Baltimore Hackathon, the first ever, in which computer cognoscenti step out of their electronic communication worlds and gather to share ideas and physical space, pitting projects against each other in competition for cash prizes.

Harbor Hospital just took a step toward solving the old problem of wasting advertising dollars on people unlikely to respond. Wanting to promote its emergency department to neighbors and employees of nearby businesses, the Baltimore hospital launched an ad campaign on "smart," Internet-connected phones — but not just any smart phones. "Geo-targeting" filters sent the banner ads only to folks using phones in 20 nearby ZIP codes. Clicking the ad produced a website on which potential patients could plot turn-by-turn directions to the ER, for immediate use or future reference.

Despite neighbors' opposition, a plan to build 325 homes clustered on a portion of historic Doughoregan Manor was unanimously approved Thursday by the Howard County Planning Board. "It's one more step," said Joseph Rutter, the former county planning director who is guiding the project through the county's rezoning system for the descendants of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Some Carroll descendants still live in the mansion on the 892-acre Ellicott City property - once a Colonial estate of more than 10,000 acres.

Since being selected in February to participate in a new partnership with the city, Brooklyn and Curtis Bay residents have reported housing violations, started an anti-prostitution plan and designed a summer program for children. "This is the best thing that has happened to us in a very, very long time," said Linda Bardo, 53, who has lived in the area her whole life. "We feel like we're going to get the attention we've needed for a long time." The Brooklyn and Curtis Bay area is one of six "clusters" selected to work with the city to develop what has become known as a Strategic Neighborhood Action Plan, or SNAP.
