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 loud knock came about 2 a.m., and Dante Wooding roused himself. He saw police lights flashing through his window. Downstairs, a friend was at the front door. "Najee's gone," the friend said. Dante looked at his mother, who was crying. Najee Thomas was just 14. He lived across the street in a small brick Cherry Hill rowhouse with his mother. But he practically roomed with 15-year-old Dante. He was over all the time playing Grand Theft Auto or crashing supper. He had just been laughing on Dante's steps Monday evening with a small group of friends, who had been making fun of Najee's dance moves.

Baltimore prosecutors have resurrected charges dropped six years ago against a convicted sex offender, a rare move that comes as the man's latest trial is set to begin after a series of acquittals on recent accusations. Nelson Bernard Clifford, who served prison time for a sex assault conviction in 1997, has faced three rape trials in recent years after authorities said he was linked to the crimes through DNA. Clifford has taken the stand in each case and testified that the encounters were consensual, and prosecutors have obtained convictions for lesser property crimes.

Susan Burke, the attorney representing the victim of an alleged rape at the U.S. Naval Academy, recently filed an action in federal court to bar the academy's superintendent from deciding whether the case proceeds to a court-martial ( "Lawsuit seeks removal of Naval Academy superintendent from sex assault case," Sept. 5). The suit alleges he should be removed due to bias because, among other things, he did not make the hearing officer stop abusive questioning of the alleged victim.
