The Baltimore County Police Department has scheduled a Basketball Clinic for Saturday, March 30. Kids from ages 8 to 17 are invited.

Walk-in registration with a parent or guardian begins at 8 a.m. in the Sollers Point Multi-Purpose Center, located at 323 Sollers Point Road in Dundalk 21222. The clinic begins at 9 a.m. and ends at noon. There will be pizza, snacks and water for the young athletes.

The officers will offer their skills and know-how to the kids on the court. They will learn teamwork. As they shoot the hoops, they will see the officers as people, not just someone with a badge and uniform. The person on the court is not just the officer in the neighborhood, but someone to trust in a time of trouble. They will see a person like them. Our officers are great role models.

Cornelius McMurray, a top tier coach at Gooseneck Basketball and AAU Hall of Famer, will help train participants in skills, drills and fun.

Bring your friends. There is nothing like a good game of “b-ball” with friends from your neighborhood!

Hope to see you there!

Police are investigating a shooting in Dundalk that killed a man on Portship Road last night.

Neighbors called 9-1-1 around 8:30 p.m. when they heard shots fired. Officers and EMS responded to find the victim lying on the sidewalk in the 1800 block of Portship Road with at least one gunshot wound to the upper body. He was pronounced deceased at the scene. 

The victim is identified as Jose Noel Savaria (51) of the 1800 block of Portship Road, 21222.

Homicide detectives continue to work this morning to identify a suspect and motive for this murder. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020.

A 59-year-old woman died in a one-alarm, New Year's Day apartment fire in Dundalk.

Lillian Lyman Lindeman, of the 2800 block of Dunlawn Ct., was pronounced deceased at the scene by BCoFD EMS personnel after repeated attempts to revive her were unsuccessful.

Engine 7 (Essex) and other east side crews were dispatched at 9:40 p.m. after another resident of the apartment building reported smoke in his unit. Firefighters found the victim's apartment filled with smoke and located the victim -- who was unresponsive -- in the living room. EMS crews immediately began advanced life support care.

The resident who reported the fire was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries.

BCoFD fire investigators determined that the fire began when smoking materials ignited combustible items. The fire and smoke damage mainly was limited to the apartment of origin.
