An infant child was found next to her dying mother just before dawn Tuesday after police say a man broke into a Pigtown home, killed a young couple and shot two others - a grisly scene that brought to 20 the number of people shot in the city in a span of 80 hours. Police said they had charged 35-year-old Melville Mason, who they said was caught trying to escape the home. The arrest came as officials sought to address concerns about spiking crime amid a violent summer and a recent outburst of street robberies throughout the city.

Richard A. "Dick" Simmons, a retired Baltimore police officer who was a founder and first president of the Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 3, died Tuesday of complications from an aneurysm at the University of Maryland Medical Center. He was 84. Mr. Simmons was born and raised in Chicago, where he graduated from high school. "Because of the Depression, his parents couldn't afford to keep him, and when he was 4 years old they placed him in Lawrence Hall, a home for boys that was run by an Episcopal priest," said his daughter, Janet Embleton of Franklin, W.Va.

Anne Arundel County is without an official police chief following Tuesday's formal retirement of Chief Larry Tolliver. This month Tolliver announced he was stepping down effective May 22, and County Executive Laura Neuman has not named a permanent or interim chief to replace him. Deputy Chief Pam Davis is handling day-to-day affairs for the department, said department spokesman Justin Mulcahy. Davis routinely fills in when the chief is traveling or on vacation. Though Tolliver's last official day was Tuesday, he has not been at police headquarters in Millersville since May 10, when a few dozen staffers threw him a farewell party, Mulcahy said.

The family of 17-year-old Markell Jones was watching the television news one night in November 2011, authorities say, when the broadcaster introduced surveillance tape footage of the killing of an Army veteran inside a Greenmount Avenue carryout. Relatives recognized Jones on the tape, authorities say. After talking it over, they called police, and Markell gave a full confession - and a written letter of apology to the victim's daughter. It appeared to be a clean, closed case.

On a recent Friday night in the Baltimore Police Department's high-tech Watch Center, an urgent but vague tip came in — a murder witness was in danger. The tipster had overheard a conversation but knew only the nickname of the witness and had a hunch about the name of the street where the killing had taken place. Could police figure out the witness's identity and get to him before those who wanted to harm him? The Watch Center is a nerve center built on the ninth floor of police headquarters after the terrorist attacks of Sept.

I noticed with all the gun control talk and various politicians knocking each other over for the microphone to create a new law to save lives, those same politicians failed to do the same for the seven inmate deaths in the last seven months ("Senate gives final approval to gun control bill" April 4). How could this be? A controlled environment (government run) where no weapons are allowed, let alone guns, has seven homicides in seven months! Surely, a politician during this most recent session in Annapolis would have sponsored some bill, right?

An Annapolis man suspected in the shooting death of a man and injury of a woman in the city's Robinwood public housing neighborhood is expected to turn himself in to police on Wednesday, his lawyer said. Clarence Eugene Johnson has been sought by Annapolis police since mid-December, when police obtained a murder warrant for him less than two days after the shootings. Joseph Louis Johnson III died in the shooting, and Jana Jackson, 31, was wounded. The fatal shooting victim and defendant are not related, but the victims and suspect knew each other, police said.

A man who was shot about 6 p.m. Wednesday in the 4600 block of Laurel Avenue in Northwest Baltimore's Cylburn neighborhood later died at a hospital. The shooting took place blocks from where a man holding a gun was shot by police Tuesday night and also close to where another man was shot in the face and injured Monday night. This week, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said officials had pinpointed the area where the man was shot as a concern because of recent violence. In another incident Wednesday, a 15-year-old boy was shot in the foot about 8 p.m. near the corner of Gay and Fayette streets, very close to Baltimore police headquarters downtown.
