The savage beating of veteran ABC-TV newsman Gary Shepard this month was not a random attack by a roving band of homeless men but a robbery planned by a teen-ager whom Shepard had taken into his home, according to police reports. Police reports, including statements by the defendants, say that the Nov. 2 attack on Shepard in his isolated home in the Malibu hills was set up by the teen-ager and three young men who had met shortly before while hanging out on the beach near the Santa Monica Pier.

At first, news of the savage beating and robbery of ABC newsman Gary Shepard in his isolated Malibu hills home early this month appeared to confirm Westsiders' worst fears about the homeless. The veteran correspondent, early accounts suggested, had been the victim of a random attack by a roving band of marauding transients who had ventured north from a base on the beach in Santa Monica. But police and Sheriff's Department reports obtained by The Times tell a different story.

A judge in Santa Monica has dismissed attempted murder charges against three of five men charged with beating and robbing an ABC news correspondent Gary Shepard. Superior Court Judge James Albracht on Monday found insufficient evidence to try Charles Ray Hicks, 25, John Girou, 18, and Zoran Marjanovec, 19, on the most serious charge stemming from the Nov. 2 attack in the newsman's Malibu home. The dismissals came as Albracht threw out an alleged confession by Hicks against his co-defendants.

Life/Death Twists: ABC said most of the few dozen viewers who called to react to Tuesday's surprising "thirtysomething" plot twist expressed relief that Nancy (Patricia Wettig), who has battled cancer for more than a year, was going to survive. In the episode, shaggy-haired series regular Gary Shepard (Peter Horton) was killed in a car accident just as Nancy and friends were celebrating her upbeat prognosis.
