On this block of Tyler Avenue in Annapolis, 17-year-old Kwame Travon Johnson was fatally shot Sunday night. A day later, a bloodstain and a flower marked the spot where his body was found. On this block, Timothy Hayes Marsh, 48, was fatally shot a month earlier. The family of the Severna Park resident, who was found slumped over the wheel of his 2001 Acura Integra, speculates that he was in the area to purchase drugs. And on this block is where Frank R. Jones, a 38-year-old electrical contractor, lived before turning up dead last month on a Davidsonville roadside.

Anne Arundel County, Annapolis and local housing authority officials yesterday proposed flooding the troubled Robinwood community in Annapolis with more police patrols, activities for teens and social services for parents to reduce violence, but have yet to determine how to pay for the initiatives. The panel's recommendations were its first step since announcing a collaborative "full-court press" in the neighborhood. The panel of law enforcement, government, public housing and school leaders also recommended opening a police substation and installing a license plate reader at the entrance of the apartment complex to deter drug dealers and buyers.

For 10-year-old Paris Lyles, the gathering in his Annapolis neighborhood was about balloons, burgers and bubble gum. But for his mother, Quintina Curtis, it was a chance to plant flowers and commune with neighbors about building relationships in a sometimes-troubled community. "We need this. It helps kids understand how to keep the community clean, and they will appreciate it," Curtis said. "And we need something positive in this community to bring everyone together to form a support group to make things happen."

IT IS UNFORTUNATE that many of Cochise Ornadez Daughtry's neighbors in the Robinwood community of Annapolis have decided that the 18-year-old was an innocent victim of a city policeman with a quick trigger finger. To reach the conclusion that Officer David W. Garcia acted recklessly is to ignore evidence that suggests Mr. Daughtry and his companion, Vernon Eugene Estrep Jr., were not blameless victims.From what is currently known about the late Sunday night shooting, it appears that the two Robinwood youths contributed to their own misfortunes by refusing to obey an order from a uniformed policeman.

More than 100 people packed City Hall last night in a show of lingering anger and mistrust after a police-involved shooting in the Robinwood community that has divided the city along racial lines.The protest, organized yesterday by the Black Political Forum and Friends of Black Annapolitans, is evidence that Robinwood remains shorthand to many black city residents for an unfair criminal justice system four months after a police officer fatally shot an 18-year-old black man and critically wounded another.

Northrop Grumman, the defense contractor based in Linthicum, installed the new computer lab Friday as part of its renovation of the center in the Annapolis public housing neighborhood.
