Man shot by police back in hospital ICU

William Lee "Billy" Robinson, 30, of 708 W. King St., Martinsburg, was listed in fair condition Thursday evening, a hospital spokeswoman said.

He had also been listed in fair condition Wednesday and earlier in the week, but he was not in intensive care.

Boy injured in fire is out of hospital

A 5-year-old Hagerstown boy rescued from a house fire on Tuesday night was released from Washington County Hospital Wednesday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The cause of the fire reported at 10:24 p.m. Tuesday at the 2421/2 N. Locust St. duplex remained under investigation, Hagerstown Fire Marshal John Hersh said Thursday.

The boy was rescued from his second-floor bedroom by his mother's boyfriend, Fire Marshal Tom Brown said.

Thomas Connolly arrived home shortly before 10:30 p.m. to find his home on fire and the boy still inside. He brought the unconscious boy downstairs, where he realized the boy was not breathing and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on him, preventing a probable fatality from a rapidly burning fire, Brown has said.

The fire began in the mother's second-floor bedroom, Brown said.
