Devastated parents and distressed police and political leaders took to the streets Saturday to plead with the Waverly community to help catch the killers of 3-year-old McKenzie Elliott, whose shooting death has galvanized the city to stop a surge of violence in the past week. In a city where residents are often reluctant to cooperate or fear intimidation, their mantra was: "Say something. " "She meant a lot to everybody, especially me," the toddler's mother, 21-year-old Nina Epps, said Saturday.

A 19-year-old man was charged with attempted first-degree murder this week after police say he attempted to shoot a man in a carjacking in Baltimore. Police said on June 28, a suspect opened the side door of a van that had turned on to the 3600 block of Dolfield Ave. in Northwest Baltimore's Dolfield neighborhood and pointed a gun at the driver. The gun, however, became stuck in the van's door and the suspect was unable to fire, police said. The driver of the van ran away and the suspect, whom police identified as Darnell Gwynn, of Gwynn Oak, drove the van several blocks before firing at a group of people in the 3600 block of Fernhill Ave., police said.

Dorothy Grubb said she feared her boyfriend would kill her. She wrote in court papers that he threatened to do that, then throw her in his truck and drive off down the road. Two years later, according to police, Clyde Campbell followed through on that threat.

Investigators said Campbell loaded the body, wrapped in a tarp, into his Ford F-150 pickup truck.

A case focusing national attention on the use of deadly force by off-duty law enforcement ended Wednesday when a New Jersey detective was acquitted of murder in a fatal roadside shooting last year along Route 3 in Millersville. It took an Anne Arundel County Circuit Court jury about six hours to find Joseph Lamont Walker not guilty on charges of first- and second-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter and handgun violations in the death in June 2013 of Lansdowne resident Joseph Dale Harvey Jr. "The jury was able to see this for what it was — a father who was forced to defend his family, including his wife and his children, who were under attack on the side of the road," said defense attorney Charles N. Curlett Jr. "The prosecution's theory of the case that this was an act of murder ... is simply wrong.

When a New Jersey police officer goes on trial Monday in Annapolis in the killing of a Lansdowne man during a road rage incident, he won't face the first-degree murder charge alone.
