Officers responded about 3:38 p.m. to the 3000 block of Wolcott Avenue for a report of a shooting and found a man with at least one gunshot wound to the upper body, said Detective Jeremy Silbert, a police spokesman. The man was transported to an area hospital, where he died, Silbert said. Police had not released the man's name as of late Sunday.

A man was shot and killed Tuesday night in Baltimore's West Forest Park neighborhood, as killings in the city's Northwest District approached the total for all of last year. While the Park Heights area in the northern portion has long been a troubled area, half the killings in the district this year have occurred in the southern area, where there is lower crime and neighborhoods consist mainly of single-family homes with well-kept lawns. Maj. Johnny Delgado, the district commander, said he thinks police enforcement efforts in the northern part of the district have led criminals to venture southward.

Wayne Hill left Walbrook two years ago as a 5-foot-7 freshman. When Hill returned to Baltimore last fall after a year in North Carolina, Forest Park coach Greate White  was struck by a fairly obvious change in the combo guard's appearance. “He was 5-7 when he left and he came back 6-4,” said White, who coached Hill on Walbrook's junior varsity during the 2009-10 season. “I recognized him, but I was like, 'Wow, he has grown.' Once he got on the court, you could tell his game had grown and matured also.

Antoine Myers loved the idea of learning from one of the game's best point guards of all time, making his commitment to Isiah Thomas ' Florida International program an easy decision. A week after Myers' pledge to the Panthers, however, plans to play for the NBA Hall of Famer were ended when FIU dismissed Thomas. “It was difficult,” Myers said. “I had my mind set on going to one place and then for all that stuff to happen, to reopen my recruitment and try to like another school, it was kind of hard.”  While Myers was upset with Thomas' dismissal, several mid-major programs were ecstatic that the 6-foot-3, 190-pound point guard was back on the market.

After taking a year off from school, former Forest Park shooting guard Quentin Judd has finalized his plans for a return to the classroom and the basketball court. Last week Judd, who averaged a team-high 19 points for the Foresters during the 2010-11 season, signed a letter of intent to attend Pensacola (Fla.) State College on a full basketball scholarship. “I'm proud to be a part of this moment. This sets the precedent for all of you to get through the door," Forest Park coach Greate White said to his team after Judd's signing.

While his friends and former AAU teammates embarked on their college basketball careers, Antoine Myers toughed it out at prep school and then junior college, wondering if he'd one day join the ranks of Baltimore natives playing Division I ball. “To see what they were doing and see where I was at, knowing that I could be there, it kind of hurt my feelings at first. I was down on myself,” said Myers, a 2009 Forest Park graduate who did a fifth year at Notre Dame Prep in Fitchburg, Mass., before heading to Pensacola (Fla.)

The Dunbar boys basketball team was in unfamiliar territory midway through the fourth quarter of Saturday's Class 1A South region title game against visiting Forest Park, trailing by three points with another trip to the state tournament in the balance. That's when the No. 3 Poets leaned on a couple of constants that have played big in the team's consistent success — experience and defense — to pull out a 62-54 win over the No. 13 Foresters. Dunbar, two-time defending state champions, closed out the final 5:20 with a 19-8 run to seal the program's 18th state tournament appearance.

Aquille Carr scored 61 points for Patterson when the Clippers played Forest Park last year. But he didn't need to do as much this time, and that made coach Harry Martin a happy man. Carr finished with a game-high 24 points, as No. 3 Patterson defeated No. 8 Forest Park, 79-63 on Monday night. Patterson not only had Carr's complete play, but benefited from strong performances by Nymee Manns, Devin Hebron and Leonard Livingston. This game didn't affect the Baltimore City standings, but a Patterson win over Carver later this week secures the Clippers a spot to play No. 7 Dunbar in the Division I title game, probably next week.
