Police seek witnesses, victim in Westview shooting

A day after a New York City man was shot in the leg at a Westview apartment, Hagerstown City Police were looking for witnesses and the victim Thursday.

Monroe Anthony Myers, 19, of no fixed address, was shot once while visiting the tenants of 960 G-B Main St. around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Capt. Charles Summers said.

Police were notified of the shooting by housing security.
