Star-Spangled Ebola | Tuesday, December 16

More details are coming out on the shooting of Officer Andrew Groman on Sunday night. According to police, Groman was shot by Donte Jones during a traffic stop when Groman demanded the passengers of the car show their hands. When Jones refused, Groman went for his Taser and Jones drew and fired a revolver.

Jones was on probation for a previous gun charge, and was arrested again in June. His June arrest violated his probation, yet a probation violation warrant never made it before a judge. There’s no explanation yet of why the arrest warrant never materialized.

A man was shot in Upper Fells Point overnight.

According to Google, here are Baltimore’s top searches for 2014. The Orioles, celebrity deaths, local events like the Star-Spangled Spectacular, and ebola fears were high on people’s minds this year.

Millenials (the trendpiece generation) aren’t too crazy about working for the federal government, a major regional employer. Reasons may include an tedious job application process, recent federal budget instability, and crushing bureaucracy. (via City Paper)

It’s not quite time to pre-panic over a winter storm this weekend.
