Police arrested a 68-year-old man in connection with a shooting in southwest Baltimore earlier this week. Jessie Cobb, who lives in the 600 block of Mount Holly Street, was charged with attempted first degree murder, police said.

Police did not release the identity of the victim but said he was treated and released from an area hospital. "It appears that it was domestic," Baltimore police spokeswoman Det. Angela Carter-Watson said.

A Baltimore grand jury indicted a city police officer on Thursday on charges that he had a sexual relationship with a girl who was a minor, according to a statement by the Baltimore State's Attorney's Office. The indictment charges Frederick Allen with two counts of sex abuse of a minor and a third degree sex offense for the sexual relationship between June 2005 and September 2006. The officer has not been arrested and no arraignment date has been set, the statement said. "Fred Allen's alleged actions are shameful and do a great disservice to the hard work of the men and women of the Baltimore Police Department," said Baltimore City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts, in a statement.

More than six months after a teenager was fatally stabbed downtown just hours after the Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl victory parade, police announced an arrest in the killing. Nazir Williams, 16, was indicted in the murder of 15-year-old De'ontae Smith, who died after a Feb. 5 fight involving several juveniles outside a McDonald's at North Howard and West Fayette streets. Two other teens were wounded. The charges brought a measure of closure to Smith's family, who had criticized the city for playing down his killing and had called out for witnesses, who they believed were not coming forward with information on the suspect.

A Baltimore police officer accepted cash payments and provided protection for a man she believed to be a drug dealer — a man who was actually working with department investigators and FBI agents to build a criminal case against her, authorities alleged Friday. Ashley Roane, a 25-year-old patrol officer in the Southwestern District, agreed to access law enforcement databases listing informants and other sensitive information for the drug dealer, and provided Social Security numbers to him as part of a scheme to obtain false tax refunds, prosecutors said.
