Probe into shooting continues
Police Tuesday continued to search for the person who shot a New Jersey man Monday night on Jonathan Street.
Kurrian Tyshon Grasty, 18, remained in fair condition Tuesday night at Washington County Hospital, according to spokesman John C. Costopoulos.
Hagerstown City Police Sgt. Rick Johnson said Grasty was struck from the belly button down. Authorities released few other details about the incident.
Eight shots were fired, including four that struck Grasty, Capt. Robert Voytko said Tuesday during a City Council work session.
Although detectives would not speculate on a motive for the shooting, the head of the Washington County Narcotics Task Force said a suspect is known to his agents.
Sgt. Charles Summers would not say whether drugs might have played a role in the shooting. "What are all these out-of-town people doing here?" Summers said. "I think people are smart enough to draw their own conclusions."
