Fifteen-year-old Deshaun Jones had spent much of the summer hanging out in the neighborhood where he died last weekend, gunned down as he sat on a porch just before his first day at Frederick Douglass High School. The teen was among seven people shot in a single incident Saturday in Franklin Square. On Monday, when he was to have begun his freshman year, red, white and blue balloons were left at the shooting scene, along with a stuffed toy animal. The other victims — all adults — are expected to survive.

Angela Agnew brushed aside cigarette butts with her hand as she placed candles on the sidewalk, part of a memorial in front of her parents' Northwest Baltimore home Sunday afternoon. The litter might be unremarkable any other day, but lying right where Loressa "Ressy" Little and Leroy Agnew had tossed them every day from the porch, they served as yet another heartbreaking reminder of a couple gone too soon. Police said the two were gunned down inside their home in the 5200 block of Denmore Ave., in the Arlington neighborhood near Pimlico Racecourse, at about 1:27 a.m. Tuesday.

At the sound of two whistles, Matthew Bitner-Parish sets up at the shooting line. After another whistle, he draws his bow and stands still, eyes focused on the target 70 meters away. On a crisp fall day, Bitner-Parish trains during one of his biweekly practices on a field outside Ridgely Middle School in Lutherville-Timonium. A soccer practice is underway on an adjacent field, and neighborhood residents stroll past on a sidewalk up the hill. When he finally shoots, the string snaps back with a thud as the arrow takes off. It's another bull's-eye.
