Keith Mcneill was sitting in his Toyota Tundra, about to leave the garage where his vehicle had been repaired, when he noticed someone lurking around the East Baltimore business. The off-duty officer called the shop's owner, who had left moments earlier. The man immediately doubled back and returned to Higgs Automotive just in time to hear the gunfire that would pierce the Tundra's doors and leave Mcneill struggling for life. Court documents released Tuesday provided a clearer picture of the circumstances surrounding the shooting Friday - even as a motive remained elusive.

Brooks Ramsey woke up yesterday morning determined to buy himself a car.But not just any car.It had to be the charcoal-gray 1989 Lincoln Town Car with the whitewall tires, vinyl roof and AM-FM radio and tape deck -- the car that had helped critics brand Dennis F. Rasmussen as a big spender and throw him out of the Baltimore County executive's office.Once every two years, of recent, Mr. Ramsey apparently gets this craving for a Lincoln Town Car formerly owned by a county executive. So yesterday he went to the Bel Air Auto Auction, where Mr. Rasmussen's infamous Town Car fell into his hands for the bargain price of $10,300.
