Baltimore police are asking for the public's assistance in finding one of 48 alleged members of the Black Guerrilla Family gang indicted earlier this month. Gerald Johnson, 31, is alleged to be a leader of the gang who authorized the murders of Gregory Rochester in 2007 and Moses Malone in May because he believed the men were cooperating with police. Johnson was unable to be found by police when they executed raids to arrest the suspected gang members two weeks ago. Police said he frequents the Greenmount Avenue corridor and that his last known address is in the 1500 block of Madison Ave., in the Madison Park neighborhood.

At the Crispus Attucks rec center Wednesday, young children were sprawled on mats watching "The Cat in the Hat" while dreamily waving their small feet in the air.

After more than 40 years of operation in West Baltimore's Madison Park neighborhood, Crispus Attucks is slated to close this month - one of at least four centers that will be shuttered under the city's long-planned overhaul of its recreation facilities.

It has been dubbed the "murder mall" by neighbors.
