Attorney pleads guilty to federal tax charge

A Baltimore criminal defense attorney pleaded guilty to a federal tax charge yesterday, admitting that he did not pay $118,000 he owed, prosecutors said.

Ruxton resident M. Gordon Tayback, 50, faces up to one year in jail and a $100,000 fine after pleading guilty to one count of willfully failing to file his tax returns, according the U.S. Attorney's office.

Tayback, a former city prosecutor, could not be reached for comment last night. Prosecutors calculated that he owed $118,000 in taxes and said he did not file Maryland tax returns from 1987 to 1994. He made partial payments on federal taxes during that time. Tayback's annual income from 1990 to 1993 ranged from $172,000 to $243,000.

Man, 25, shot to death in Northeast Baltimore

A man killed in a hail of gunfire Thursday night in Northeast Baltimore was identified by police yesterday as Eric Bolling, 25, of the 1100 block of Orleans St. on the east side.

Sgt. Frederick H. Bealefeld III said the victim was walking alone in the 4100 block of Eierman Ave. about 9: 30 p.m. when a gunman approached and fired at least 15 rounds at him, hitting him several times.

Bolling was pronounced dead at the scene. Bealefeld said several people standing across the street saw the shooting and told detectives that the gunman ran away on foot. No arrests have been made.
