Shooting victim's condition critical



A 23-year-old man shot four times Saturday night on Central Avenue had a fight with two other men before the incident, Hagerstown Police said Sunday.

Damion Maurice Womble, address unknown, was found at about 10:14 p.m. He was lying on the west sidewalk on the 300 block of Central Avenue, off Salem Avenue, with gunshot wounds on his right upper leg, right kneecap, front left hip and right middle finger, police said.

Womble was listed in critical condition Sunday evening at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Womble was first taken to Washington County Hospital by Community Rescue Service. After preliminary treatment in the emergency room there, he was transferred to the Shock Trauma Center.

Police said Sunday that they still did not have details of the shooting.

The two men who argued with Womble had not been found, Hagerstown Police Sgt. Mark Renner said.

Those two men were seen leaving in separate vehicles, police said. One vehicle is charcoal gray with dark, tinted windows. The other vehicle is gray, but the driver's side door is a different color.

One vehicle was described Saturday night as possibly an older model Oldsmobile.

Police also said on Saturday night that five men were on the sidewalk with Womble before he was shot.

One was described as a black man, about 6 feet, 3 inches tall and wearing a leather jacket. Another was described as wearing a black puffy coat. Another was wearing a silver coat.

The Hagerstown Police Department Criminal Investigation Division is asking anyone with information about the shooting or the men who argued with Womble to contact Detective Shawn Schultz or Detective Bill Rourke at 301-790-3700, ext. 234.
