Police officer who fatally shot Korryn Gaines also involved in deadly shooting in 2007 - Baltimore Sun

Monday, September 12, 2016

Shellenberger said Thursday. He declined to elaborate on what those are.In 2007, Ruby was one of two tactical officers who shot at a suicidal 24-year-old man in the 8700 block of Avondale Road in Parkville, police said. The shooting was ruled legally justified.The person killed in that shooting was identified as Adam Benjamin Rothstein.According to police, Rothstein called 911 and said he was armed with guns, knives, pepper spray and a Taser. They said officers found him at Parkville Middle School, and negotiators began speaking with him.Police said Rothstein pointed a weapon at officers at 3:29 a.m. after giving them an ultimatum that he would start shooting at 3:30 a.m. if he didn't get what he wanted.Later, police discovered the weapon was a BB gun."It's just very hard for me to talk about," said Richard Rothstein, Adam Rothstein's father, when reached by phone Thursday. He declined to comment further.At the time, police said Adam Rothstein might have been "agitated over issues surrounding a recent job loss."Richard Rothstein told The Baltimore Sun in 2007 that his son had been rehired as a security guard and was expected to start work the week he was shot. He said his son suffered from bipolar disorder.alisonk@baltsun.comtwitter.com/aliknezjkanderson@baltsun.com

Pontiac honors late coach, mentor Bobby Kaiser - The Oakland Press

Monday, August 22, 2016

Russell, Sabrina Arnold, Hank Woodmore, Peter Durham, Gerald Rasool, Terri Covington and others who came to pay their respects.“He kept us out of trouble,” said Woodmore, a state sprint champ at Avondale in the early 1980s.“He saw the No. 1 in all of us, the greatest in me and everyone else,” said Lance Davis, former Pontiac Central basketball coach. “That’s what I remember about him.”Kaiser, a noted jazz aficionado, was the son of Cecil Kaiser, who played in the Negro Baseball Leagues as a pitcher during the 1940s. He also worked for General Motors, and was a counselor for the Urban League.But he always found the time to coach, counsel and mentor kids.He was an assistant track coach with Dave Edwards at Pontiac Central when the Chiefs were 1997 state runnersup to Pontiac Northern, and coached a number of all-state athletes. But he also coached football, basketball and wrestling.“We coached together for 37 years,” said former Pontiac Central football coach Irv Speaks, who started his coaching career with Kaiser. “I lost a friend, a brother and a mentor.”Graves said Kaiser’s crown jewel was Jefferson Junior High in Pontiac, where he coached and mentored hundreds of youngsters through the years. He was a mediator of sorts, according to former Pontiac School Board President Kevin Gross, when there was a turf war between factions of youth on Pontiac’s South and East sides during the 1970s. “Jefferson Junior High was a safe haven for us,” said Gross. “(And) Bob was an intrical part in my brother Val and I. He turned us into men.”Indeed, Kaiser’s goal was peace and cooperation as a vanguard for youth development.“My dad coined the phrase ‘can’t we all just get along’ long before Rodney King,” Graves said.And future world heavyweight boxing champion Pinklon Thomas was a youth on the wild side before Kaiser helped reel him in through athletics and mentoring. “He kept a lot of people out of trouble and he helped a lot of people realize their potential,” said Thomas, who worked out with some of the best boxing trainers in the country. “(But) none of them had touched my life the way Bobby did.”
