As late morning rolled on along Wilkens Avenue in Southwest Baltimore, there were few obvious hints of the violence that had occurred just hours earlier. But just off the road were two large pools of blood, spilled from the body of the man police say was shot here just before daybreak. The police account is brief: at 5:23 a.m., officers were called to the 3400 block of Wilkens Ave. where they found a man who had been shot in the chest. He was transported to an area hospital — it doesn't say whether it was St. Agnes Hospital, which overlooks the street — and died of his wounds.

Someone's been making off with the big industrial batteries that provide backup power at traffic signals in Baltimore, and now the thefts are being investigated by the city inspector general's office, which looks into allegations of waste, fraud and abuse in municipal government. A representative of the battery's manufacturer said the thieves most likely would have tried to sell the 54-pound batteries as scrap for their lead content. Russell Conelley, an agent in the IG's office, confirmed in an interview with The Baltimore Sun that it is investigating battery thefts reported to have occurred along Harford Road in Northeast Baltimore and Wilkens Avenue in Southwest Baltimore.

Wilkens Avenue at the Baltimore Beltway will be subject to overnight lane closures and shutdowns this week as construction crews erect steel girders for a new interchange bridge, the State Highway Administration said. The state is spending $13 million to replace the obsolete Beltway Inner Loop bridge over Wilkens Avenue, which was built in 1956 and widened in 1963. The project also includes upgrading roadway lighting and installing lighting beneath the bridge; building new sidewalks, curbs and gutters; and widening a small portion of Wilkens Avenue for bicycle traffic.
