The family of a man fatally shot by FBI agents conducing a surveillance earlier this year on Reisterstown Road is questioning police tactics and the finding by prosecutors that the use of deadly force during a car stop was justified. While relatives of Jameel Kareem Ofurum Harrison acknowledge that he had a criminal record, they deny police descriptions of him as a gang member, and say they didn't give him a chance to get out his car and surrender before firing 19 rounds, hitting the 34-year-old six times.

Away from the stage and the studio, the jazz fusion bassist is a family man who relishes the joys of home. And all of that fun, warmth and vibrancy translate nicely on his latest album, Soul Circus, in stores Tuesday. The 16-cut record is a family affair. "I usually involve the kids when I make an album," says Wooten, who is calling from his Nashville home.

Everyone knows that Francis Scott Key wrote the words to "The Star-Spangled Banner." But how many people know that he also wrote a brief in support of Sac and Fox Indians against a white settler with claims on their land? Or that Key once aspired to publish a newspaper, ordered fried oysters by the dozens and in 1839, paid $9 in taxes for three female slaves? Key (1779-1843) may be a patron saint to many Marylanders, but his life isn't exactly an open book. A trove of letters, receipts and legal papers recently acquired by the Maryland Historical Society helps to flesh out a historical figure who never completely overcame a cardboard cut-out image as a pious patriot with a penchant for sentimental rhymes.

The parents of a developmentally disabled man who died after being handcuffed at a Frederick County movie theater have sued Regal Cinemas and the county in federal court. The lawsuit filed Thursday also names the county sheriff's office, three deputies and the movie theater as defendants. Robert "Ethan" Saylor, 26, died in January after the incident at the Westview Regal Cinemas at Westview Promenade in Frederick. In the lawsuit, Patricia and Ronald Saylor accuse the defendants of negligence, violating Ethan Saylor's civil rights and violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. "If any of the Defendants had heeded Mr. Saylor's aide as to how to deal with Mr. Saylor, his tragic and unnecessary death would have been avoided," they say. Saylor had Down syndrome and an IQ of about 40, they say, and it was easy to recognize his developmental disability.

A Dundalk man convicted in April of strangling two prostitutes was sentenced yesterday to back-to-back life terms in prison without the possibility of parole by a Baltimore judge who called him an "evil and violent person." City Circuit Judge John M. Glynn told the courtroom that there was overwhelming evidence against John Patrick Garcia, while Garcia told the judge he is innocent and had no motive to rape and kill prostitutes. "I can go into any bar any day of the week and get any woman I want, not by being a Don Juan, but by being me," Garcia said in his own defense before sentencing.
