Shame on The Sun for its recent article on a victim, Tyrone Brown, the ex-Marine who served his country and received a honorable discharge ("Haunted by violence," March 23). The reporter twisted the story to make him seem like the shooter. He was unarmed when he was assassinated by off-duty Baltimore Police Officer Gahiji Tshamba. Mr. Brown's story didn't need to be placed on the front page. The question remains how many more loose cannons are there in the city's police department?

A man convicted in a 2010 fatal shooting at a Hess gas station in exchange for $9,000 argued unsuccessfully that he should get a new trial because the judge in his case had once been the target in a similar scheme. The Court of Special Appeals upheld Walter P. Bishop Jr.'s conviction in an opinion announced Tuesday. Bishop, now 32, was convicted and sentenced to two consecutive life sentences plus 20 years for shooting William "Ray" Porter at a Joppa Road gas station in Towson on March 1, 2010.

Blaming the National Rifle Association when guns are used in criminal deaths as Dan Rodricks did in his recent column ("Adapting to the newest form of gun insanity," July 24) is like blaming the Alcohol Beverage Industry Association when a drunk driver kills someone. Or blaming the American Medical Association when a doctor causes an unnecessary death. The sole blame for the mass murders in Aurora, Colo., is squarely on the perpetrator for his very evil deeds.

Activision announced a   new   first - person   shooter based on AMC's hit show "The Walking Dead" to be released sometime next year. Telltale Games has done a fantastic job spinning off the show and comic book's universe into an episodic adventure game, so it only seems natural that someone would try their hand at the action-packed moments of the series. The game is based more on the show than the comic, and takes place before the events of the first season, focusing in on brothers Darryl and Merle Dixon.

Pedro Garcia, a silver medalist shooter from Peru identified yesterday as the third Pan American Games athlete who failed a doping test, apparently was using a performance-enhancing drug.Garcia's urine sample contained traces of the drug propranolol, a medication for pulse regulation that slows the heartbeat. Shooters sometimes use such illegal substances, known as beta-blockers, to calm them and help their aim.In the book "Drugs and the Athlete," propranolol is listed as a therapeutic drug that "may both control migraine headaches and improve hand steadiness in riflery."

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts met with students at KIPP charter schools Friday to ease their fears, a day after a visiting college student's tripod was mistaken for a gun, setting off an hours-long lockdown. "I have a young child who goes to school not far from here," Rawlings-Blake said afterward. "I live not too far from here, so this was something that was very personal. I'm just so proud of the students, the teachers, the administrators and all the first responders who did everything right.

This spring, a group of college students will go about their usual campus routines, but with a voice only they can hear calling them names and making other distracting, disturbing sounds. In their case, the voice will come from a recording playing through earbuds as part of a research study. But researchers say the exercise could ultimately help increase awareness and break down the stigma that prevents those who suffer from auditory hallucinations and other symptoms of mental illness from getting the help they need.

Darion Marcus Aguilar had no connections to his victims and modeled his attack on the Mall in Columbia after the Columbine High School shooting, Howard County police revealed Wednesday. Police said Aguilar, 19, even waited until 11:14 a.m. on Jan. 25 to launch his attack -- the same time the two Columbine students opened fire in 1999. Howard County Police Chief William J. McMahon said Aguilar acted alone during the attack and planning. Aguilar, of College Park, killed Zumiez employees Brianna Benlolo, 21, and Tyler Johnson, 25, before killing himself.

If it seems that tragedies like the shooting at The Mall in Columbia last month are becoming more frequent, it's because they are. That's what a new study published in the FBI's Law Enforcement Bulletin last month concluded. It found that since 2009, active shooter events have more than tripled in frequency, and the numbers of people killed or injured have risen sharply too. How should society respond to such a trend? Certainly it should seek ways to prevent such tragedies before they occur, but it should also look for ways to limit casualties when they do. Nothing is more effective in limiting the loss of life than proper training.

When Darion Marcus Aguilar of College Park fatally shot two store employees at The Mall in Columbia and then killed himself, authorities said he did so with a Mossberg 500, a Connecticut-made pump-action shotgun that has been on the U.S. market since 1961. A 19-year-old with no criminal record, Aguilar bought the weapon in a legal December transaction from a Montgomery County gun store. The incident has caused some to take second look at the effectiveness of the high-profile gun control measures the state passed last year.
