At the spot where a man was gunned down Thursday night outside a West Baltimore liquor store, someone placed an open Bible. It was opened to Proverbs 25, and one of the men milling around the store leaned over and read aloud: "If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink.
