A man who wrestled a handgun away from a bank security guard before fleeing through the Cross Street Market in Federal Hill was shot by police Monday afternoon after witnesses helped officers track him several blocks away in South Baltimore, officials said. The shooting was the latest incident of daylight violence in well-traveled downtown areas, following a stabbing near Lexington Market on Friday, a fatal shooting at a downtown barbershop Saturday and a rash of armed robberies that swept through the Mount Vernon area on Sunday morning.

Every month since her brother was shot and killed by police last year, Priscilla Johnson has gone back to the Northwest Baltimore neighborhood where he died to hand out fliers, begging for anyone who saw something to come forward. What the family knows, gleaned largely from news reports, is that Dennis Gregory was a bystander who was shot by detectives who were aiming for his friend, Glenn Brooks. And they know from the autopsy that Gregory was hit four times in the back. What they didn't know is that Gregory was acting as a confidential informant that night and that it was his call to police to report that Brooks had a handgun that summoned officers to the scene in the first place.

Baltimore police continue to search for a gunman who shot a homicide detective in a downtown parking garage a block from police headquarters on Tuesday. The detective — who was heading to his car to retrieve a pair of running shoes — was grazed in the leg and was treated at Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Police have declined to name the officer, citing a policy of not publicizing names of shooting victims who survive their wounds. But department sources have identified him as Detective Anthony N. Fata, a 13-year veteran.

Two years ago, it seemed that everyone was demanding that the city police commissioner fire Officer Salvatore Rivieri for berating and pushing a 14-year-old who repeatedly called him "dude" and ignored orders to stop skateboarding at the Inner Harbor. Letters poured into City Hall and police headquarters from across the country after people watched Rivieri's abrasive lecture on YouTube. A man in Beverly, Mass., addressed his missive, "Hey Dude" and called city police "a joke" and told the commissioner, "You should be ashamed!

Crazy John hasn't owned Crazy John's in at least a dozen years. But the takeout still bears that signature name and red awning, snuggled on The Block between the oversized red lips logo over the doors to Club Lust and the more pedestrian Arcade Liquors store. Boasting everything from Chicken Alfredo (Wednesday's special) to pepperoni pizza spinning on a wheel in the window, the place still attracts a crowd of sundry visitors. And it still attracts the attention of miscreants and the police, as it did earlier this week, recalling the days when the strip was filled with nefarious characters, such as the original Crazy John, who lives on today, plastered on FBI wanted posters.
