He died at the scene. Police arrested three people they found nearby: Erica Banks, her father Eric Banks and an associate, Tremain Calhoun Jr. Eric Banks of Baltimore County is on trial for murder in Anne Arundel Circuit Court in connection with Bell's death.

Eighteen suddenly seems like an awfully large number, like Roger Maris' 61 and Hank Aaron's 755. Those figures towered over baseball until sluggers began injecting power into their veins. But Tiger Woods won't be able to ingest his way to Jack Nicklaus' record for major championships. If there existed a pill to help make 12-footers, we all would have taken it by now. Just 81/2 months ago, around the time Americans were pouring gravy on their stuffing and dark meat, Woods seemed an absolute cinch to reach 18. Not yet 34, Woods had claimed 14 majors, one by 15 strokes (the 2000 U.S. Open)

BETHESDA -  Before Tiger Woods committed last week to playing in the Quicken Loans National, many figured that Congressional Country Club would look and feel very much like it did last year, when the absence of the world's former No. 1 player offered plenty of elbow room. It could be that way again this weekend. The crowds and major-championship buzz that followed the game's biggest draw through the first two rounds likely will disappear now that Woods, looking older than 38 and trying to find his game after being sidelined more than three months after back surgery, has missed the cut. Coming into Friday's second round at 3-over-par, mostly the result of poor first-round putting, Woods struggled in all facets of his game, shooting a 4-over 75. His two-day total of 7-over-par 149 was 13 shots off the lead and four strokes off the cut line.

BETHESDA - Tiger Woods had a feeling his first competitive round in more than three months after back surgery was not going to be easy. It was not his back that gave the 38-year-old Woods trouble in Thursday's opening round of the Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club. It was his hands. The touch around the greens that has often eluded Woods since he won the last of his 14 major championships six years ago was missing until the final six holes, when three birdies helped him overcome a terrible start to finish with a 3-over par 74. Still, Woods didn't make a putt longer than 10 feet, missed several short birdie and par save possibilities, and didn't chip particularly well.

Tiger Woods has long been known for wearing red and black on Sunday, his wardrobe of choice for nearly all of his 79 victories on the PGA Tour. When the 38-year-old tees off Thursday for the first time in a tour event in more than three months, Woods and the rest of the field will be thinking about how much rust he will be wearing. The atmosphere for his practice round Wednesday at Congressional Country Club during the pro-am for the Quicken Loans National was reminiscent of when he played here in the 1997 U.S. Open a couple of months after winning the Masters by a dozen shots.

BETHESDA - Like the superstar athletes who befriended and mentored him early in his career as he watched them grow old, Tiger Woods keeps staring at his own golfing mortality. Coming off a three-month layoff following back surgery, Woods returns to the PGA Tour this week for the Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club with a bit of a different game than the one he has played for the past 18 years as a pro. “Just like M.J., I've got the fadeaway,” Woods said, referring to one of his longtime confidants, Michael Jordan.
