There was a homicide last night, which I believe is the 8th in the city this year. The victim was an 18 year old male, and the shooting occurred in College Creek Terrace, which is a HACA community near Clay Street in Ward 2:

At approximately 6:55 PM on October 31st, 2007, Police Dispatchers received a
report for several shots fired, with a possible victim lying on the ground
near 50 College Creek Terrace, Annapolis, Maryland. Upon the arrival of the
officers, an 18 year old male victim was found on the scene, suffering
from a gunshot wound(s). The victim was taken by ambulance to the
Anne Arundel Medical Center, where he was pronounced as deceased a short time later. The identity of the victim is unavailable at this time, pending notification to next of kin.

I actually suspected that such an event may have occurred....I scared the bejesus out of Mrs. Politics when I arrived at her Ward 2 abode around 7:30, which she informed me was only half an hour after she heard multiple gunshots. As she says, "it's so sad to think that somebody's whole life is just gone."
