Blood smeared the white door and concrete slab outside a rowhouse where a teenager was gunned down early Thursday, the second 17-year-old killed in Baltimore in as many days. The killings of Keith Powell in Northeast Baltimore early Thursday and Adrian Gilliard in West Baltimore on Tuesday night pushed the number of youths killed this year to a dozen. The total has surpassed the count from all of last year, when 10 juveniles were killed. Baltimore police and city leaders have spent the last several months developing laws and programs - including a more restrictive curfew - aimed at protecting African-American youths from violence.

Moving quickly to quell resident concerns about police actions during the arrest of four at Gilmor Homes on Wednesday, a top Baltimore police commander walked the housing project and assigned investigators to look into the case. Residents of the West Baltimore development said city police acted aggressively when arresting people who had flocked to intervene in a struggle between a man and officers. Some said an officer used a Taser on a woman holding a young child. Deputy Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez said he personally viewed city surveillance camera footage of the incident and disputed the witness accounts, saying the woman had handed off the child before she was struck with the Taser.
