Scott told District Judge Norman R. Stone III yesterday.

A 20-year-old man was sentenced to spend 55 years in prison for a shooting that authorities said missed its target and instead injured a 10-year-old boy in East Baltimore. Circuit Court Judge Emanuel Brown issued the sentence on Tuesday for Dafon Canty, who was convicted during a trial that ended in January. The judge suspended all but 55 years of a life term. The shooting occurred Aug. 19 in the 1100 block of North Lakewood Ave. Prosecutors said Canty approached Terrell Singleton, who was sitting on the steps of a home, to avenge an earlier argument.

Baltimore will end 2008 tonight with its fewest homicides in two decades, fighting through a late-year spike to mark one of its biggest year-to-year drops. The decline - a drop of almost 50 killings, from 282 to 234 as of midnight - continues a trend that began in late 2007 when Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III took command of the Police Department. It restores the city's homicide total to levels not seen since the late 1980s, before an infusion of crack cocaine routinely drove the annual body count above 300. But the improvement has been tempered by several confounding factors.
