A New York man, charged in connection with an April 1998 shooting in Hagerstown's West End, has been arrested in Cumberland, Md., on drug charges.
Ronnie Walker, 25, was being held at the Allegany County Detention Center on Wednesday, according to Lt. Gary Spielman of Hagerstown City Police.
Spielman said Walker gave Cumberland police an alias but they determined Tuesday he was Walker and they notified Hagerstown police.
A man was shot in the leg in the 4:27 p.m. shooting on April 13 in the 900 block of Lanvale Street. The man was taken to Washington County Hospital, where he stayed overnight.
Walker, who goes by the street name of "Bishop," was picked up by Brooklyn City Police on Hagerstown's warrants shortly after the shooting, Spielman said.
