Warrants on charges of attempted first-degree murder have been issued for Curtis Thomas, a Baltimore man wanted in connection with a Dec. 19 shooting on Jonathan Street.

Hagerstown City Police also have warrants charging Thomas, 23, with one count each of attempted second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and wearing or carrying a handgun.

Also known as "C Dob," Thomas is described as a black man with black hair and brown eyes. He is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds.

The charges stem the shooting of Andre Lashawn Morgan, of Garden Lane.

Shortly after the shooting, police arrested a North Potomac Street man but dismissed charges against him on Dec. 22.

Because of confusion at the shooting scene, witnesses made errors in identification that led police to file charges against the man, according to Sgt. Rick Johnson of Hagerstown City Police.

Washington County Assistant State's Attorney Lisa Hardy entered the dismissals Dec. 22.

Morgan, who was shot in the buttocks and the leg, underwent surgery Dec. 19. He was released from Washington County Hospital on Dec. 27. police said.

Witnesses told police that Morgan and the person who shot him had gotten into a fight.

The person left, returned with a gun to the 300 block of Jonathan Street, and started shooting at Morgan, who ran, according to police.

Police found Morgan in the first block of West North Street and found that he had been shot, police said.
