After a lull in July, violence returned to the Inner Harbor during the weekend when a man and a boy were shot during a scuffle between what appears to be rival gang members inside one of the pavilions. The incident occurred just as a concert in the amphitheater was letting out, and though police arrived within minutes, the gunman apparently got away in the rush of people fleeing the scene. Further complicating matters, the victims themselves have made apprehending a suspect difficult by refusing to cooperate with investigators.

I have to say I feel for Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., who was arrested last week by police acting on a report of a burglary at his house. Turns out the "burglar" was Mr. Gates himself, whom a neighbor had spotted struggling to unlock a stuck front door at his house after returning from a trip abroad. When police arrived a few minutes later, after Mr. Gates had gained entry to his place, things somehow went wacko. Earlier this week, I reported on The Sun's editorial page blog (baltimoresun.

Residents hear gunshots. It stands to reason they want to know what happened. It's not an easy task. People near Canton Square woke earlier this week to the sound of men arguing. They heard three rapid pops, and some looked out their windows and saw two men walking down the street, one holding a gun. One person looked in the newspaper the next day and, finding nothing, e-mailed The Baltimore Sun and then sought help from the Baltimore Guide. That prompted calls to Baltimore police and an e-mail exchange that ended with more confusion than answers.
