An initiative by at least a dozen federal law enforcement agents in South Baltimore on Monday evening that led to several injuries and arrests also included an exchange of gunfire, which was not initially disclosed. Special Agent Clare A. Weber, a spokeswoman for the Baltimore field office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said the information about gunshots on Patapsco Avenue was initially withheld because of an internal investigation. Weber would not say why the ATF was in the 1000 block of W. Patapsco Ave., near Magnolia Avenue, late Monday afternoon and early evening.

She was buried in a small pink coffin. But before the casket closed Friday, mourners gathered at the Israel Baptist Church in East Baltimore to say goodbye to 3-year-old McKenzie Elliott, whose hair, as in many of the pictures of her that flashed on the church's large screen, was in braids with little white bows. The toddler was struck by a stray bullet outside her home in Waverly a week before. Two others were also injured in the shooting. Police sources said Friday that a person of interest turned himself in for questioning in the shooting, though no charges have been filed.

Just two pages into the book "Unbroken," its protagonist is in the water, hiding beneath the deteriorating life raft in which he has been drifting across the Pacific Ocean for almost a month. Overhead, Japanese bombers are circling back to strafe him a second time. And sharks are approaching from below. Death is coming for him from two directions, and your impulse is to verify that this is not a novel, not some outlandish fiction from the Indiana Jones School of Narrow Escapes.

For every gunshot report taken by Baltimore police, there could be four more they haven't heard about, according to the company behind a high-tech system that city officials hope will help curb the illegal use of firearms. ShotSpotter, which recognizes the sound of gunfire and alerts police, analyzed its data from 48 cities, covering 165 square miles, and found people called 911 to report shots fired in fewer than 1 in 5 events where the system confirmed the discharging of a gun. "We're showing the real inconvenient truth of gun violence, in that it happens more frequently than people are aware," said Ralph Clark, the CEO of SST Inc., which manufactures ShotSpotter.

It was March 30, 1923, and Carroll County, like the rest of the nation, was in the depths of Prohibition. Prohibition, known as the Volstead Act, did not go into effect throughout the nation until Jan. 20, 1920. But Carroll Countians had voted to outlaw the sale of alcohol in the county six years earlier, in 1914, according to research by historian Jay Graybeal for the Historical Society of Carroll County. Prohibition remained the law of the land until the passage of the 21st Amendment on Dec. 5, 1933.

Shafon Robinson found comfort in how well her children seemed to be coping this past week. They had been elsewhere in The Mall in Columbia when the shooter killed two store employees and — in a moment that still haunts her — turned and fired at her. He missed, and in the ensuing days, Robinson felt the fallout for her family would be limited — until she received a call from the school about her youngest. "She won't stop screaming," Robinson said she was told. Anxious outbursts, restless nights and troubled dreams have followed home some of the shoppers and workers who were at the mall last Saturday.

Too often, we take for granted the people we hire to guard our communities and apprehend those accused of wrongdoing. Baltimore County Police Officer Jason Schneider, a 13-year veteran of the force whose unit carried out some of the department's most difficult and dangerous missions to capture armed fugitives, was one such unsung hero. His death Wednesday in a hail of gunfire inside a Catonsville house was a tragic reminder of the risks he and others like him face on a daily basis in order to ensure the safety of those they are sworn to protect - that is, all of us. Officer Schneider, a 36-year-old father of two, was by all accounts an exemplary public servant and a leader among his colleagues on the county SWAT team, where he had been involved in the planning and execution of virtually every tactical operation carried out by his unit over the last decade.
