A Dayton woman who was accidentally shot in the chest by one of her friends is suing the friend and his father for $2 million each. Katie L. Weyer, 18, and her parents are seeking damages from Benjamin Mark Allen, 19, who was convicted of reckless endangerment in connection with the shooting and was sentenced in June to 11 weeks in jail and 3,000 hours of community service. The suit also names Mark Allen, who owns the .22-caliber revolver his son used to shoot Weyer. According to the lawsuit filed in Howard County Circuit Court on March 15, Weyer was a guest at the Allens' Woodbine home in July 2004 when she saw Benjamin Allen holding a handgun and cautioned him about playing with guns.

A Circuit Court judge sentenced a 19-year-old Howard County man to 18 months in jail - with all but 11 weeks suspended - for accidentally shooting a teenage schoolmate with a handgun last year after taking it from his father's locked safe. Benjamin M. Allen of the 900 block of Iron Rail Court in Woodbine also was sentenced by visiting Judge Daniel Moylan to 73 days of home detention, three years of probation and 3,000 hours of community service. Allen broke down briefly during a short, but rushed, statement in which he said that he regretted his "lapse in judgment."

"He wouldn't just say, 'I think I can help this kid.' He'd say, 'I think I can make the difference in this kid's life.

Hotel is not liable in teenager's death, Judge Dudley rules A Howard County judge last week tossed out a lawsuit seeking to hold a Columbia hotel accountable for the January 2001 shooting death of a teenager who attended a party there, saying the hotel was not obliged to protect the revelers from "unforeseeable criminal acts by a third party." The ruling, issued by Howard Circuit Judge James B. Dudley late last month, marked a second setback in efforts to hold someone culpable for the violent death of Long Reach High School senior Andre D. Corinaldi, 18. A Jessup man who had been charged in the shooting was acquitted of murder and other counts after an eight-day jury trial in September 2001.
