A 16-year-old boy killed last June in Reservoir Hill was shot by a friend in a dispute over a dice game, police say in charging documents. Davon Wilkins, 19, was indicted last week on first-degree murder charges in the death of Renardo Broom, who was fatally shot on July 1, 2010. Police say Broom and Wilkins were playing dice with several friends in the 700 block of W. North Ave., and Broom got into a dispute with Wilkins over payment. Wilkins removed a handgun from his waistband and fired the gun one time, striking Broom in the torso, Detective Christopher Brockdorff wrote in charging documents.

Seven people - including a 15-year-old boy who was killed - were shot in West Baltimore on Saturday night, and police believe it stemmed from a conflict over an illegal dice game. The 15-year-old victim was not identified late Saturday, and police said they did not yet know whether he was the intended target. Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said this year authorities have seen a rise in "cluster" shootings in which multiple victims are struck by gunfire, and they are investigating whether there is a cause for the rise in cluster shootings.

Rosie Jones fully understands the hot seat she created for herself. Asked about the thought process that went into finalizing the U.S. Solheim Cup roster she will be taking to Ireland next month, Jones looked up from her lunch with a grin. "You mean my picks?" she said. Well, yeah. Particularly the player with just seven LPGA starts under her belt. From the outset though, Jones has acknowledged the addition of Ryann O'Toole isn't exactly conventional thinking — "a very wild pick," she called it before making the announcement late Sunday.

This week, why not take a chance on Mozart? Literally. During its "Many Moods of Mozart" program on Saturday, the Concert Artists of Baltimore will take time out for a perfectly legal crap game. It's all part of "Musikalisches Wurfelspiel" -- "A Musical Dice Game" -- devised by Mozart in 1787 as an arbitrary way of coming up with a minuet. The roll of the dice determines which pre-composed musical phrases are put together to form a complete composition. Other playful sides of Mozart will be explored as well, through excerpts from "The Marriage of Figaro," "The Magic Flute," the "Turkish" Violin Concerto and "Paris" Symphony.

Baltimore officials were expected Monday to begin reviewing the backgrounds of 13 transportation employees arrested last week after they were caught drinking champagne and playing dice in a city office as part of what authorities described as a regular "payday" gambling game. The roundup occurred Friday in a Department of Transportation building on East Madison Street and was sparked by a tip to city officials who contacted the inspector general's office, which investigates corruption, fraud and waste in city offices.

An overlooked song from an overlooked album finally gets a video. “Home Sweet Home,” the Lloyd Banks/Pusha-T collaboration from Banks’ H.F.M. 2 , goes down a gritty alley of bleak black-and-white shots of New York City. The video doesn’t show us anything we haven’t seen (Blunt ashes! A dice game! NYPD!), but “Home Sweet Home” is, above all else, a display of chilling rap bars. Banks, a gifted wordsmith in love with internal rhyme schemes, and an invigorated Pusha-T create a contrast of styles.
