May 08, 2000

The last of three men charged in an April 1998 shooting in Hagerstown's West End was sentenced Monday.

Ronnie Walker, 26, of New York City, was sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of reckless endangerment.

Washington County Circuit Judge Frederick Wright approved the plea agreement, which resulted in charges of attempted murder, assault and handgun violations being dropped.

Michael Williams was shot in the thigh on the afternoon of April 13, 1998, while running in the 900 block of Lanvale Street, said Assistant Washington County State's Attorney Gina Cirincion.

All three men charged in the shooting have pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment and sentenced to five years in prison, Cirincion said.

The other defendants are William Vasquez, 29, whose street name is "Boo," and Vance McNiel, 23, also known as "Monster," she said.

Walker, whose street name is "Bishop," will serve his sentence concurrently with a seven-year sentence stemming from drug charges in Allegany County, Md., Wright said.
