Annapolis police are investigating the early Friday morning shooting of a 23-year-old man while he was running from a dispute, police said. Police said that it is possible that Dejuan Jacarter Hill of Annapolis was the victim of a stray bullet. He was in the 900 block of President Street and told them he was with a group of people nearby in the 1100 block of Madison Street when another man approached them and started talking with someone in the group. The conversation "escalated," according to a police spokesman, and both of those people reached into their pockets, leading others in the group to scatter.

I think people have the right to record in public, especially when it has to do with the police. There are often times police use excessive force. I feel police hide behind their badge and gun thinking that they have the right to harm people. Second of all, I think when it comes to trying to calm a crowd full of people down that someone should be recording. You never know what you're going to really see on tape because the police don't want you to see everything. It's like they are hiding something.

Police foot patrols would be very beneficial in improving police-community relations in Baltimore. This is a plea for our incoming mayor, Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake, to consider this positive alternative for utilizing those in uniform who patrol our city. Many citizens perceive police men and women in patrol cars as being distant, perhaps even aloof. There is no better way for Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III to utilize his officers than to saturate the city neighborhoods with foot patrols.

The news story, "Local rapper, wife charged in deadly stabbing after show" (July 10) by Jessica Anderson included details on who provided identifying information to the police. Does anyone in Baltimore doubt that the criminal community knows exactly who the informant is by now, thus putting his life at risk? The police source for the story should not have revealed who their source was, and The Sun should not have published that information. Your articles on the dramatic increase in violent crime in Baltimore usually state that the police are unable to get information from the community to help solve the crimes.
