The Ellicott City man who drowned at a Tough Mudder obstacle course race was under water for between five and 15 minutes before rescuers pulled him out, according to witness accounts in the investigative report by a West Virginia sheriff's office. Sgt. Ted Snyder, who investigated Avishek Sengupta's death for the Berkeley County sheriff's office, found that the circumstances of the April 20 incident did not warrant criminal charges. The office closed the case about a month later.

Baltimore police suspended a patrol officer Tuesday after a television news helicopter's camera captured him allegedly striking a teenage car theft suspect who had been detained. Police are not releasing the identity of the officer or the 14-year-old suspect, who was on the ground at the time of the incident. Police said they can't provide many details of the pursuit that led to the arrest because it was carried out by the Regional Auto-theft Task Force, a team of city, Baltimore County and state police officers.

Why is it that nobody sees anything when someone, man, woman or child, is gunned down on Baltimore's streets? In a city where it is the norm for people to sit on their porches late into the night to escape the heat, the only violence people see are the ones where police are involved ("Witnesses of man's death sought at vigil," July 24). These are the same people who complain about the safety of their streets but thwart any effort to enforce the laws and make lawbreakers into victims.

Detectives completed another round of victim and witness interviews on Wednesday and maintained that they don't believe the beating of a Hispanic man near Patterson Park was spurred on by the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial in Florida — though at least one witness said she has never been interviewed. Police have been looking for racial motivations in the beating of 37-year-old Melvin Garcia in the 2700 block of E. Fairmount Ave. on Sunday night after a woman said she heard a group of black youths yell, "This is for Trayvon" during the incident.

Baltimore police say they are investigating a witness account that a group of black youths beat a Hispanic man near Patterson Park Sunday while saying, "This is for Trayvon. " A witness posted the account on a community Facebook page, and police confirmed they are looking into whether the suspects' reaction to the verdict in the Florida trial of George Zimmerman played a part in the incident. A police report on the beating does not mention the alleged comments. Sgt. Eric Kowalczyk, a police spokesman, declined to go into further detail.

Meddaugh Ambrose had parked on the west side of South Carey Street on Thursday afternoon during a trip to get lunch when, for reasons she can't quite pinpoint, she moved her car to the other side of the street. That move would prove fortuitous. Moments later, a blue Honda came flying down Carey Street, hitting a pickup truck passing through the intersection at Washington Boulevard and sending both vehicles spinning in a twisted wreck that came to rest behind a light pole — right where Ambrose's car had been.
