He said Baker had pellet wounds to one leg and an apparent pellet wound to his arm.
Blair identified the alleged shooter as Howard Hartman, whose age and exact address were unavailable. No charges had been filed against Hartman or Baker, Blair said.
The shooting was called in at approximately 8:35 p.m. from the station at the intersection of Edwin Miller Boulevard and Warm Springs Avenue, but did not occur there. Blair said it happened at the Oak Tree Estates development off Oak Tree Lane where Hartman apparently lives.
"Mr. Baker arrived at the Hartman residence. Mr. Hartman apparently had some fear for his safety and a single shot was fired," Blair said in describing the circumstances of the incident.
He said police were still trying to determine the cause of the altercation.
"We're going to speak to both sides on this," to determine what happened, Blair said after he returned to the state police barracks. He said the investigation was ongoing and he would be contacting the Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorneys Office.
Hartman was still being interviewed at the barracks late Sunday night. Baker was still being treated in the emergency room, although Blair said a trooper was there interviewing him, as well. Baker's condition was not available.
"All he told me he was shot. I'd rather not talk about it," said a woman behind the counter at the AC&T. She declined to give her name. Another female employee was mopping up the floor where the man had been treated by ambulance personnel.
