Police fanned out Friday afternoon to search for clues in the killing of teenager Michael Mayfield in Northwest Baltimore, handing out fliers with the victim's image as they moved door to door along Lyndhurst Avenue. Two days after the fatal shooting of the 17-year-old, investigators say they are still at a loss for a motive. As a homicide detective ordered 16 police cadets to hit the streets in the case, he reminded them of the gravity of the case. "The most important thing you're going to handle is a murder," said Lt.

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?
