Perry Hall High shooting: 'Love' mural will help healing process

PERRY HALL, Md. (AP) - Students who witnessed a shooting in the cafeteria on the first day of school in Baltimore County will create a mural to help with the healing process.

The mural will be an extension of the Baltimore Love Project, which has 15 murals around the city. Each shows the word "Love," with the letters formed by a silhouette of a hand.

One student is accused of shooting another in August at Perry Hall High School. The alleged shooter was arrested, while the victim was critically wounded but recently returned to school.

The victim and the other students in his lunch period will install their "Love" message Dec. 13. Scott Burkholder of the Love Project says project artist Michael Owen and Perry Hall students are working on a unique design.
