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?
