A Hagerstown man involved in a January shooting in the 400 block of Park Place was sentenced in Washington County Circuit Court Tuesday to five years in prison for reckless endangerment.
Durrell M. Blackmond, 26, of the 100 block of West Church Street, faced attempted second-degree murder and first-degree assault charges in the incident. Those charges were dropped in exchange for his Tuesday plea to a reckless endangerment charge.
Hagerstown City Police said an unidentified woman called police on the afternoon of Tuesday, Jan. 12, to tell them she heard shots at around 4 p.m.
Officers who checked out the call stopped a man who was fleeing the scene, police said.
Police developed information that Blackmond had been in a fight with William S. Pearsall, 21, of 55 S. Potomac St., and other occupants of a red Jeep Cherokee, according to court records.
