Baltimore : Walbrook
Shooting victim's father is arrested
Maurice Gordon-Bey Sr., a Walbrook man who police say attacked a teen-ager who he apparently believed was involved in his son's death, has been charged with assault.
Gordon-Bey was arrested Friday afternoon in the 2500 block of Linden Ave. and taken to Central Booking and Intake Center, said Baltimore police spokesman Troy Harris.
The altercation occurred Thursday afternoon as family members gathered to mourn the death of Gordon-Bey's son, Maurice Gordon, 15, who was fatally shot early Wednesday as he sat on a neighbor's front porch. A photograph of Thursday's incident appeared in Friday's editions of The Sun.

The man, believed to be in his early to mid-30s, was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead. Police have not been able to identify him.
Sakai is named water chief
The Maryland Department of the Environment has named Jay Sakai as its new water management director.
Sakai, who was the administrator of Baltimore's Bureau of Water and Wastewater, will manage more than 300 state employees, overseeing wastewater permits, storm-water safety and wetland protection.
Sakai succeeds Robert M. Summers, a longtime MDE manager who was promoted to deputy secretary in January. Like Summers, Sakai is a Johns Hopkins University graduate. He is a licensed engineer with a master's degree in business and a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from the school.
Sakai will begin his new duties in August.
