Witnesses to a fatal shooting at a Halloween party last year at a $1.6 million Columbia mansion described a chaotic scene in which at least four fights broke out, partygoers passed guns through windows to avoid security and a bottle was cracked over a young man's head. These new details are contained in hundreds of pages of police investigative documents reviewed by the Howard County Times this week. Prosecutors provided the documents to defense attorneys in the case two weeks ago. The documents, based on interviews with more than 100 witnesses, also help explain why prosecutors say they were forced to drop murder and attempted-murder charges against two young men initially accused in the crime.

Christina Murphy wanted her Halloween party to be epic. Rooms were given ghoulish themes. Everything was cobwebbed. Each light bulb was switched out into autumn colors. She even hired a professional makeup artist for herself and guests. Murphy enlisted the help of Lutherville-based Lexi Martinez to help transform her into "Star Wars" character Oola, Jabba the Hutt's green-hued dancer. She said her guests were blown away. "It looked amazing," said Murphy, a 28-year-old bartender.

A Columbia mansion that was the site of a Halloween party where one man was fatally shot and another was badly injured was the scene of another shooting at a similar event in June, a Howard County police spokeswoman said Tuesday. According to Sherry Llewellyn, police were called about 3 a.m. June 20 to the 11000 block of Manorstone Lane after complaints from neighbors. Investigators reported that shots were fired "in the air" outside the house by someone driving by. No one was injured, and no arrests were made.

FOR A sleepy, residential area, a lot happens here in just a week. For starters, the afternoon Halloween party held Sunday at Carroll Baldwin Hall was a raging success. The hall was festooned with hanging moss and chains dangling from the lights. Admission was a bag of candy to be distributed as prizes for the games. Inside were refreshments and a half-dozen traditional games, such as ring toss and guess-the-weight-of-the-pumpkin. But the most entertaining aspect was the partygoers themselves.

The article on Al and Tipper Gore's Halloween party in Saturday's Today section was by Sun national staff writer Ellen Gamerman, whose byline was inadvertently omitted.WASHINGTON -- What to wear when trick-or-treating with the Clinton administration? Perhaps no one will be nervy enough to don a beret, but at least some bold guests plan to strap angel wings to their right shoulders and show up as "a vast right-wing conspiracy."There will certainly be enough fodder for political punning when at least 500 media people, White House players and their relatives gather at Vice President Al Gore's residence today for his annual Halloween party.

Given the trouble she's gotten into in recent years (think: trying to trademark the word "Hon"), one might presume Cafe Hon owner Denise Whiting would take special care to avoid unforced errors that cast her establishment in a less than flattering light. One might presume so. But one would be wrong. The Sun's Jill Rosen reported this week that Cafe Hon posted on its Facebook page a photo of one of its staff members in blackface for Halloween. That's right: a white person, in blackface, "dressing up" as a black person (in this case, the singer Whitney Houston)

As a retired state parole and probation agent I remember the neighborhood concerns when my agency opened new offices. To some extent these concerns were valid because there was genuine uncertainty about how day to day life might change. Not so for Project PLASE which has an established 38-year track record as a good neighbor in central Baltimore City. As a member of St. Joseph's Monastery Parish, I attended the Dec. 17 meeting when people of all persuasions voiced their views (Project PLASE tries to quell neighborhood fears in S.W. Baltimore," Dec. 28)

There will be no Family Fun Fest in Glen Burnie this year, and the future of the town's Halloween Safety Party is iffy at best.The Northern Anne Arundel Chamber of Commerce says it doesn't have enough people to put on the two popular annual festivals and isn't interested in being the chief sponsor.Edward Kennedy, president of the chamber, said he hopes someone else will agree to organize the Halloween Safety Party.The chamber and other community groups and businesses took over the festivals in 1993, after the county's work force reduction and reorganization prompted the Office of Community Services to drop the events.

Halloween costumes did not disappoint this weekend. I saw a zombie Qaddafi and an Utz Girl wearing a motorcycle helmet as hairdo, which justifiably won $50 bucks for best costume at Windup Space's party. Sadly, someone in Baltimore did not do the costume that seemed ubiquitous in Brooklyn: his and hers Beetlejuice masks . But maybe that'll change tonight. Halloween in Baltimore doesn't seem to be over: The Ottobar 's downstairs floor will be turned into a haunted house.
