A 25-year-old medical student charged with fatally shooting a stranger at an Owings Mills movie theater in June was convicted yesterday of first-degree murder but found not criminally responsible for the killing because of a mental illness. Doctors who evaluated Mujtaba R. Jabbar for the state before the murder trial scheduled to begin yesterday diagnosed the defendant with schizophrenia and found that the disorder had left him unable to conform his behavior to the law, county prosecutor Rachel Cogen said.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is being treated for a rare form of leukemia, and the basketball great said his prognosis is encouraging. The NBA's all-time leading scorer was diagnosed last December with chronic myeloid leukemia. The 62-year-old Abdul-Jabbar said his doctor didn't give any guarantees, but informed him: "You have a very good chance to live your life out and not have to make any drastic changes to your lifestyle." Abdul-Jabbar is taking an oral medication for the disease.

Karim Abdul-Jabbar did everything but slam-dunk the Ravens yesterday, rushing for 108 yards and three first-half touchdowns to give the Miami Dolphins a commanding lead on the way to a 24-13 victory at Memorial Stadium.First, let us clear up the story behind the sound-alike name. Although he grew up in Los Angeles and played at UCLA like Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karim is not a copycat. Born Shamon Shah, his new name was simply given to him when he adopted the Muslim faith in 1995.

It's a mere three days after Christmas (if you celebrate that sort of thing) and the fourth day of Kwanzaa (if you celebrate that sort of thing). It's still not too late to buy a gift. Since I come from what is probably the last generation to value literacy, I recommend giving books.One of the best books now in stores comes from an unexpected source: one Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, he of the famous sky-hook and the "Showtime" Los Angeles Lakers. Abdul-Jabbar retired in 1989, to the sorrow of basketball fans everywhere.

Paul Schrum wanted to see X-Men: The Last Stand, but his wife wasn't interested in the film. So on Thursday evening- which is her night for mah-jongg with friends - he hugged her, kissed her on the cheek, and headed off to a multiplex up the road in Owings Mills. When hours passed without his return, Rona Schrum went looking for her husband. It was after 1 in the morning when she pulled into the movie theater parking lot and saw his car - and many police officers. In what police described as a random attack, Paul Schrum, a 62-year-old medical supplies salesman from Pikesville, was shot dead while watching a movie at Loews Valley Center 9 in Owings Mills.

MIAMI -- There were no shadows for Jimmy Johnson to climb out from under yesterday, only the sunlit glow of new beginnings.With Don Shula absent and his once-vibrant empire a fading memory, the Miami Dolphins throttled the New England Patriots, 24-10, before a crowd of 71,542.If Johnson's debut as coach marked the new order in Miami, there were precious few reminders of the Shula past.The Dolphins' heroes were rookies named Zach Thomas and Karim Abdul-Jabbar and Stanley Pritchett. Their winning formula was a throwback to Johnson's Dallas days.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- In his most magical moments, Magic Johnson caused the champagne to flow at the Forum. But in his final moment yesterday, his official retirement, the only thing flowing were tears.Tears of regret at a career cut short by the virus that causes AIDS. Tears of frustration at what might have been. Tears of joy at what already had been in a career that stamped Johnson as one of the greatest to play the game.At the age of 11, he had dreamed of joining his boyhood hero, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, in the NBA.But Johnson never dreamed that, at the relatively young age of 32, he would be joining Abdul-Jabbar in retirement on the Forum's wall of honor.

HILO, Hawaii -- He is quicker with a smile than his father was. And clearly he is what is known as a "people person," something his dad definitely was not. Yet the physical resemblance is striking. When Valparaiso plays Minnesota in the opening round of the Big Island Invitational at 9:30 tonight, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Jr. will be making his collegiate debut.A freshman who redshirted last year, Abdul-Jabbar, 6 feet 6, will come off the bench as a small forward. He was not heavily recruited out of Brentwood High School.
