Of the 14 others, 9 were arrested Wednesday in a series of raids that police said hit multiple places around Baltimore. The drug ring operated in the Gilmor Homes public housing project and the case was developed by the Baltimore police and Drug Enforcement Administration using wiretaps, prosecutors said.

At home in the middle of the day Wednesday, it turned out that Natasha Bates was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Relatives say Bates, 40, was killed when a gunman opened fire on her brother, 34-year-old Dwayne Robinson Webb, at about noon while he was visiting her home in the unit block of N. Fulton Ave. in West Baltimore. Since the death of their mother, Bates, who recently was diagnosed with cancer, had looked out for Webb and their other siblings. On Thursday, relatives were putting together funeral plans and had set up a table under a brightly-colored umbrella to display framed pictures next to a lit candle.

While leaving a press event at the old Hebrew Orphan Asylum last week, I considered some of the other abandoned buildings I was passing in West Baltimore. Somehow the old orphanage never collapsed or caught fire. It was fortunate. It's also not alone in its abandonment. Later that dry and windy day, some big circa-1870s Baltimore houses caught fire. Houses on North Calhoun Street and others close by on North Carey Street were filled with flames that firefighters had a time controlling.
