For a man who was only 21 years old, Rasheed Abdullah seems to have made a lot of people angry. Police called him a drug dealer and neighbors in Pigtown wanted to throw him out, and in the last three years alone he was arrested at least 16 times. On Sunday morning, someone shot him in the head and killed him. Abdullah's was the second fatal shooting in the neighborhood in a little more than two weeks. On July 1, James Lofton, who was also 21, was gunned down on the 1100 block of S. Carey St., a few doors from Abdullah's home, and Baltimore police are looking into whether the two killings were related.

An man who police say is a member of a Baltimore drug organization tied to a rash of violence across the city has been charged with attempted murder after police say he dumped scalding water on a 71-year-old man and a 51-year-old woman to punish them for stealing drugs. Police wrote in court papers that the victims were receiving free "testers" of heroin in exchange for allowing two men to stash drugs in their apartment in the Latrobe Homes projects, in East Baltimore. On Feb. 17, the dealers, identified as 28-year-old Eric Rich and a second man who has not been arrested, checked on the stash and believed the amount to be short.
