New president appointed at Sibley
Sibley Memorial Hospital has appointed a Johns Hopkins executive as its new president, replacing Robert Sloan, who is retiring as president and chief executive after 27 years, the hospital announced Tuesday. Sibley, which was acquired by the Baltimore-based health-care system in October 2010, said Richard “Chip” Davis will replace Sloan on July 6. Davis is currently vice president for patient safety and executive director for ambulatory services at Johns Hopkins Medicine. Davis joined Hopkins in 1993 and established the Johns Hopkins Medicine Center for Innovation. He has a doctorate from Hopkins’s Bloomberg School of Public Health.

from a Silver Spring high-rise Tuesday, authorities said. Authorities believe that the man was working on a balcony at the Blair House at 8201 16th St., said Capt. Oscar Garcia, a spokesman for the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service. Montgomery police are calling the fall an accident. The Maryland Occupational Safety and Health agency is investigating but has yet to determine if the worker was wearing proper safety gear, said Shannon Davis, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.

Police identify man shot by officer
Authorities have identified the man shot and killed during a confrontation with a Prince George’s County police officer Monday night as 26-year-old Michael Anthony Bailey, and said they are exploring whether drugs might have played a role in his withstanding a Taser blast and trying to pull gun on the officer. Prince George’s police spokeswoman Julie Parker said investigators recovered a vial apparently containing PCP and a ski mask from Bailey, of District Heights, along with a handgun. She said that detectives could not be sure Bailey was using the drugs but that they were investigating that possibility. The incident occurred about 7:30 p.m. on an access road near FedEx Field in Landover. Parker said an officer on patrol spotted Bailey and two other men on the road, and when he approached them, they ran. Parker said the officer eventually caught Bailey and confronted him. In the course of that confrontation, Parker said, the officer shot Bailey with a Taser. Bailey, Parker said, pulled the Taser prongs from his body and kept running. She said when the officer caught up to him a second time, Bailey reached for a gun in his waistband. The officer then fired his own gun twice, fatally wounding Bailey, Parker said. Parker said the officer, who has worked for the department for three years, has been placed on paid administrative leave, in keeping with department policy for shootings involving police officers. She said internal affairs investigators were probing the incident.

Montgomery passes Wheaton plan
The Montgomery County Council on Tuesday voted for a plan to build a new headquarters for the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission in downtown Wheaton — part of a broader effort to jumpstart the revitalization of a diverse community that has long sought an economic boost. In choosing to build the headquarters as well as a town square on a parking lot at Reedie Drive and Grandview Avenue, the council put on hold a more ambitious proposal by County Executive Isiah Leggett that would have brought a hotel and as many as three office buildings to the community. The plan the council unanimously approved, however, does leave the door open for further exploration of Leggett’s plan. “This is a fairly inclusive approach that gets action jumpstarted, but keeps the door open for great opportunities that the county executive staff has for Wheaton,” said council member Nancy Navarro (D-Eastern County).

The annual D.C. Caribbean Carnival is in serious financial trouble and may not occur this year, organizers say. City officials say they will not sign off on the Caribbean Carnival until the event’s organizers pay off hundreds of thousands of dollars owed to the District for police and other services provided for the 2010 and 2011 carnivals. But the people behind the carnival say they do not have the $210,000 owed to the city. The festival, usually staged in June on Georgia Avenue NW, celebrates pan-Caribbean culture and the carnival experience. Last year, the city allowed organizers to carry over a debt from the 2010 event, but now officials appear to be taking a harder line. In letters to event organizers, D.C. officials have sought payment of the $210,437.38, mostly for security and public works expenses. The most recent letter, from Deputy Mayor Paul Quander said “approval of the 2012 Carnival would be contingent upon payment of any outstanding balances from the 2010 and 2011 Carnivals.” As the event’s finances stand, organizers would not be able to pay back the entire debt and pay for the coming summer’s carnival, according to Roland Barnes, carnival president. To try to save money, organizers are considering other locations, but the event has struggled to attract donations and sponsors in recent years. The parade route, which ends at Barry Place NW, near Howard University, used to

stretch as far north as Missouri Avenue NW. But it was shortened last year and went only as far north as Kansas Avenue NW. If the event were held elsewhere in the city, it would not be the first time. Organizers moved it downtown in 2003, hoping to attract more sponsorship. But after uproar over the move, the festival returned to Georgia Avenue the next year, said Loughton Sargeant, the executive director. The downtown carnival lacked the “community feel” of the Georgia Avenue events, Barnes said. Barnes predicted that something similar would happen if the event needed to move elsewhere this year. “It would be very impersonal,” Barnes said. “On Georgia Avenue, families can come out on the

avenue, bring their lawn chairs. You can’t enjoy that in places like downtown.” D.C. Council member Jim Graham (D-Ward 1) has participated in the event, which runs through his ward. “It is one of the best days in the District of Columbia,” he said. But Graham said the major issue is the committee’s debt to the city, and he hopes to work out a way for the city to be paid and the carnival to go ahead. The office of D.C. Council member Muriel Bowser (D-Ward 4) is coming to the event’s aid, said Rob Hawkins, Bowser’s legislative director. Bowser’s office will work with event organizers to “identify a new venue” for the event, which occurs partially within Bowser’s

ward. A study released in April by the Howard University School of Business found that the carnival had a significant effect on local businesses. An estimated 400,000 people attended the event in 2011, spending more than $21 million and providing nearly $1.3 million in sales tax revenue to the city. A move away from Georgia Avenue — or the outright cancellation of the event — would affect Georgia Avenue businesses, said Allison J. Morgan, a Howard professor and one of the study’s co-authors. “Those businesses would definitely see a decrease in revenue over the course of the year,” she said.

3 split Mega Millions jackpot


Two Maryland teachers and a school office worker who pooled their money to buy lottery tickets won the record-breaking Mega Millions jackpot and will split the $105 million prize, lottery officials said Tuesday. Maryland Lottery Director Stephen Martino said that the trio each contributed $20 and bought 60 tickets from three different locations. After taxes, they’ll receive nearly $35 million each. Martino said the winners want to remain anonymous. Three winning tickets were sold nationally, with a jackpot of $656

million before taxes. The winning Maryland ticket was bought the day of the March 30 drawing at a convenience store in Millford Mill, in Baltimore County. Until Tuesday, the majority of the publicity surrounding the Mega Millions drawing had focused on Mirlande Wilson, the 37-year-old Maryland woman who claimed to be holding the winning ticket. Wilson now says she misplaced the ticket. Her attorney said Monday that someone who contributed to the pool of money she used to buy lottery tickets has filed a lawsuit against her.

The way Prince George’s County police tell it, the 6-year-old boy found the loaded revolver in a Spider-Man backpack that was lying on the floor of the home where he stayed with his great-grandmother. Raymond A. Brown, police say, was responsible for the weapon being there. Brown, 20, was charged Tuesday with reckless endangerment and allowing access to and possession of a firearm by a minor — all misdemeanor counts stemming from the boy’s death Monday. The 6-year-old, a first-grader, pulled the gun from the backpack about

2:40 p.m. and accidentally shot himself in the chest, police said. Brown stayed in the home on Arbutus Lane in Clinton where the incident occurred, though he apparently had no family ties to the boy or the great-grandmother, police said. Brown was not there when the accident occurred, but he returned a short time later and was taken into police custody, authorities said. Police have said the boy’s greatgrandmother and grandmother were home when the shooting occurred, as were two girls, ages 9 and 11, who also are relatives. Julie Parker, a Prince George’s police spokeswoman, said detectives be-

lieve that Brown was responsible for both bringing the gun into the home and putting it in the backpack, though they are still trying to determine who owned the gun and how it came into Brown’s possession. Police revealed few other details of the case. Parker said she was not sure to whom the backpack belonged or where in the home the shooting occurred. And Parker took the unusual step Tuesday of saying police would not release the 6-year-old’s name because he is young and the victim of a crime. “It’s just something we’ve elected not to do,” Parker said.

The department — like most major departments across the country — routinely releases identities of those killed in homicides and car crashes, including victims who are younger than 18. Authorities said Brown was ordered held on $45,000 bond. Two women standing outside the home where the shooting occurred declined to talk to a reporter Tuesday morning. Attempts to reach Brown’s relatives were unsuccessful. Staff researcher Magda Jean-Louis contributed to this report.

FBI hunts for former teacher
toth from B1 Investigators call him a “computer expert” and believe he regularly uses the Internet and social networking Web sites. He is believed to advertise his services online as a tutor or male nanny. Toth attended Cornell University for a year and transferred to Purdue University, where he graduated with a degree in education. He has been indicted in Maryland federal court on charges of producing child pornography. Warrants have been issued for his arrest in the District and Maryland. A reward of up to $100,000 is available for information leading to his arrest. The other spot on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list is still vacant. “It could take months to pick somebody,” Perkins said. “You have to weigh one guy against another.”
