When he was growing up near Mondawmin Mall and the Christmas season rolled around, Andrew Dubose rarely missed a chance to visit the old man in the red suit and white beard who always gave him such a warm holiday greeting. Now 39, married, and the father of three, Dubose drives his children from the family's home in Randallstown so they can sit with the same man in exactly the same spot - Lucas Durant, the longest-running black Santa Claus in Baltimore. "Santa loves you," Durant, 65, tells Dubose's children, Jasmine, 15; Mason, 2; and Drew, 6 months, as he did their father decades ago. "Santa Luke," as he's known, has been Kriss Kringle at Mondawmin Mall for 29 years running.

Homicide detectives were investigating an afternoon shooting that occurred Friday in West Baltimore in a residential area between Mondawmin Mall and Druid Hill Park. The shooting occurred at about 3:45 p.m. in the rear of the 2200 block of Liberty Heights Ave. Homicide detectives were summoned to the scene due to the severity of his injuries, but as of Saturday morning, police said the victim remained in critical condition. Last week, a 47-year-old man was fatally shot in the same neighborhood, a few blocks south in the 2800 block of Parkwood Ave. The Safe Streets anti-violence program had held a peace rally two days later — and was shut down temporarily by the Health Department on Tuesday.

Three separate groups of robbers have held up merchants at Baltimore's Mondawmin Mall this summer, police said, and a gunman in the latest attack escaped with $100,000 worth of jewelry and watches. Sunday's theft at Elite Gold & Diamond included 42 gold rings and diamond-encrusted Rolex and Gucci watches. It fit a pattern of other holdups that have predominantly occurred in the middle of the day, and it marked the second time the jewelry store was hit since August. The crimes are occurring as city officials and investors work to revive Mondawmin - Baltimore's oldest mall - and surrounding neighborhoods.

The Baltimore City Council voted unanimously Monday to ban automated kiosks that give money on the spot for used electronics - part of an effort to curb cellphone thefts. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake praised the decision. "Tonight's vote was a step in the right direction for a safer Baltimore," she said in a statement. "These machines have been known to attract criminal activity, making it harder for communities to be safe. I support this ban and additional efforts that government and private industry can make to reduce incidents of crime surrounding these machines and to improve technologies that can permanently deactivate a stolen cell phone - making the device obsolete and reducing the incentive for criminals to steal them.

Dale Dunn strode into Kevin Ondrasek's office at the University of Southern Mississippi with an air of determination. A graduate student with one more year of NCAA eligibility, Dunn told the first-year assistant track coach he had unfinished business. Ondrasek was intrigued. Dunn was clearly a cut above the other students who had meandered in, looking for walk-on spots. He was an academic All-America sprinter who had attended Coppin State University on a full athletic scholarship.

The Fulton Avenue shootings took the life of two women and a man, the latest in an explosion of violence in West Baltimore, which has already seen 15 murders this year, half of its total for all of 2012. Ten of those killings have occurred in just a 12-block stretch southwest of Druid Hill Park and near Mondawmin Mall.
