The midnight hour has a new boss. Baltimore police officers who work the late-night and overnight shifts now face the probing eyes of the command staff. For anything from shootings to car stops, an officer with stripes covering his sleeves is beside them in a marked patrol car. The duty officer, an almost forgotten position, is back. "We want to have people of rank in the field, and we want as many as possible," said Commissioner Edward T. Norris. "Before this, a sergeant would be the highest-ranking person, and that doesn't give me a real high comfort level."

Baltimore is poised to pay a $200,000 settlement to the family of a Marine veteran killed outside a Mount Vernon nightclub by an off-duty police officer in June 2010. Though Gahiji Tshamba was not on the job when he shot 32-year-old Tyrone Brown 12 times, the victim's family argued in court filings that the city should share responsibility for the incident because Tshamba remained on the police force after several other off-duty arrests. The settlement, due for consideration Wednesday by the Board of Estimates, would conclude a $270 million federal lawsuit filed in 2011 against police commanders, the state and the city.

An off-duty Baltimore County police officer's weapon fired twice outside an Overlea party earlier this month, a spokeswoman said Wednesday. The officer had stopped near the intersection of Dale Avenue and Danville Road when he encountered a large group of people blocking the street and attempted to drive past when he himself was shot, police said. "We still have not determined the context in which the weapon was fired," said Elise Armacost, a police spokeswoman. She said the officer was not shot with his own weapon, and that police could not say if the officer fired his own weapon.

Neighbors described a large, raucous party that spilled into the front and back yards of an Overlea home, causing an off-duty Baltimore County police officer to stop his car before he was shot early Sunday morning. "We heard a bunch of laughing. It was a whole party down there," said Zach Tawney, who lives several doors down from a home in the 700 block of Dale Avenue, where he and other residents said they spotted boisterous guests gather. Tawney said he ignored the noise until he awoke to gunshots about 3:20 a.m., and called 911. Police said the officer was struck twice by a man from the crowd who fired into the officer's vehicle.

As a longtime member of Colonial Baptist Church who attended the June 23 funeral services for Christopher Brown, I found it hard to believe the Sun reporter was present and awake during the funeral based on the paper's account of the occasion ("Hundreds gather to mourn teen who died after fight with off-duty officer," June 23). The article focuses on the approximately five minutes that Rev. Jamal Bryant spoke. He was on the program only to make comments. Three paragraphs were use to report his message.
