Police Blotter is a sampling of crimes from police reports in Baltimore and Baltimore County.



Shooting -- A man, 44, and a woman, 30, were seated in the man's car parked in the 3100 block of Baker St. about 10 p.m. Saturday when someone threw a brick through the car's window that struck the man in the head. Police said when the woman got out of the car, she yelled out, "The money is in the console!" With that, the injured driver attempted to flee and was shot in the left arm. Police said the woman, who apparently set up the incident, joined several men and was being sought. The wounded driver ran to the 1300 block of N. Rosedale St., where police were investigating a fatal shooting, and was taken by ambulance to Maryland Shock Trauma Center.


Shooting -- A 39-year-old man was talking to several other men in the 2200 block of W. Fayette St. about 11:40 p.m. Saturday when a gunman fired at least one shot, striking the man in the left leg. The victim was driven to Bon Secours Hospital by a friend, where he was treated. Police said it appeared the victim was not the gunman's intended target and was unable to identify his assailant.


Assault -- A man, 50, was walking in the 5300 block of York Road about 2 a.m. Saturday when for no apparent reason he was attacked by another man who struck him on the head with an unknown object. The victim was treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital and released.
