Edwards cancels visit Sunday; he may make stop another day
Sen. John Edwards has canceled a visit to Baltimore on Sunday, but hopes instead to make a campaign stop in the city Saturday or Monday, local campaign aides said yesterday.
The North Carolina senator's plans for a Sunday visit were scrapped over the weekend when Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry agreed to debate him that day in New York City, said Rob Johnson, Edwards' Maryland director.
The visit to Baltimore would be Edwards' second to Maryland in his quest for the Democratic presidential nomination. On Friday, he spoke at a rally at Prince George's Community College in Largo.
Maryland's presidential primary is March 2.
Off-duty officer wounds man after being assaulted
An off-duty police officer with the state's Department of General Services shot and wounded a man after the officer was assaulted at a West Baltimore gas station early Sunday, city police said yesterday.
Officer Edwin Glenn, 24, who joined the force eight months ago, shot William Dorsey in the right foot about 2:25 a.m. at the Citgo gas station at 427 W. Mulberry St., police said. Police said the officer was struck before the shooting.
Dorsey, 26, of the 200 block of S. Loudon St. was rushed to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was listed in good condition yesterday. He has been charged with second-degree assault in an arrest warrant.
Glenn is on vacation, state officials said, and will soon join the Annapolis police force.

Baltimore County police had arrested Hands, 53, in August, saying they had new evidence that connected him to the shooting in Dundalk in 1990. At trial, prosecutors said Hands had been part of a conspiracy to kill Huff for life insurance money.
