Gnome field advantage

It’ll be sunny with highs in the low 80s today (really). More humid tomorrow, with a chance of afternoon storms and a high just shy of 90.

Here’s what you might’ve missed over the weekend:


Prosecutors in State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s office collected over 300,000 pieces of evidence in the case of the six officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray. On a Friday deadline, prosecutors turned the evidence over to defense attorneys for the officers. The SA’s office still wants evidence to be sealed to avoid tactical leaking by the defense, following the leak of Gray’s autopsy report last week. Prosecutors also filed a new motion requesting to keep the trial in Baltimore.

+ Worth a read: The Sun’s profile of Kevin Moore, the man who filmed Freddie Gray’s arrest. Moore’s efforts to film the police have made him an inspiration for activists, but not without consequences.


Yesterday, Baltimore Police shot a man inside a 7-Eleven, believing that an armed robbery was underway. According to police, an officer checking in on the store during a routine patrol confronted a masked man holding what appeared to be a handgun. The officer shot once. The man is in stable, but critical condition. We’re still waiting on more detail about what happened, including whether or not a gun was recovered from the scene.

+Last week, City Paper followed up on two recent police shootings, highlighting how clear details in these incidences are often hard to come by.


Three people were murdered in the city over the weekend. So far, June has seen 28 homicides, following May’s historic surge in homicides and shootings.


+ Gov. Larry Hogan started chemotherapy over the weekend. In a Facebook post, Hogan said that he’s feeling healthy and strong.

+ Did you get an Amber Alert on your phone early Saturday morning? The three missing kids were found unharmed,

Two EF-1 tornadoes touched down in southern Maryland during Saturday’s storms. Nobody was hurt.

+ On Kent Island, a racing boat crashed into spectators, injuring several people and killing a 7-year-old girl.


As a crowd full of Buck Showalter garden gnomes looked on, the Orioles swept the Indians in yesterday’s double-header. Baltimore is now tied for first place in the AL East, after a rough early season.
