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.

Baltimore's top FBI agent made an unusual public apology yesterday for the shooting Friday of an unarmed Pasadena man whom federal agents had mistakenly identified as a bank robbery suspect. But she refused to discuss the incident in detail, saying that could jeopardize open investigations. "Let me express our sincere sorrow for this unfortunate accident," said Lynne A. Hunt, special agent in charge of the FBI's local office. "I want this community to know we will do everything necessary to complete a full investigation of the facts."

Can anyone explain why police officers responding to a situation must shoot to kill when confronted by someone who makes threatening gestures with a knife ("Ellicott City man believed to be suicidal is shot and killed by police," Aug. 23)? Two such confrontations are covered in the article, and such killings have made the news for years. Granted, police must protect themselves and others in danger. But have they no option other than shooting to kill? If a person is not wielding a gun, why not target an arm, leg or shoulder to incapacitate rather than kill a suspect?

The family of a man fatally shot by FBI agents conducing a surveillance earlier this year on Reisterstown Road is questioning police tactics and the finding by prosecutors that the use of deadly force during a car stop was justified. While relatives of Jameel Kareem Ofurum Harrison acknowledge that he had a criminal record, they deny police descriptions of him as a gang member, and say they didn't give him a chance to get out his car and surrender before firing 19 rounds, hitting the 34-year-old six times.

What is happening now in Ferguson is just unnecessary ( "Baltimore demonstrators to protest again for Ferguson," Aug. 20). Rioting and looting is not a response to the death of Michael Brown. It's simply an excuse for some to commit crimes for their own benefit. Video has shown that Mr. Brown used his size to intimidate a business owner after taking cigars without paying. No one can deny this video. His being shot six times was unnecessary and not based on his theft. All of this turmoil is due to a white policeman shooting a black man. We see blacks killing blacks every day in every city in this country.
