Alleged shooter surrenders to police

The Hagerstown man believed to have been involved in a July 12 downtown shooting turned himself in Thursday afternoon at Hagerstown City Police headquarters.

Rolandas Fluellyn, 21, of 424 N. Locust St., Apt. 2, appeared shortly after 3 p.m. and was taken into custody without incident, police said.

Bond was set at $175,000, said officials at the Washington County Detention Center.

The warrant charges Fluellyn with two counts each of first- and second-degree assault, and one count each of wearing/carrying a handgun, using a handgun in a violent crime, reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm within city limits, police said.

A man fired three shots toward a Hagerstown couple walking north in the first block of South Mulberry Street around 1:50 a.m. last Friday, according to police.


The couple told police they saw Fluellyn pull a small, dark handgun from his front waistband area and fire three times toward them. The couple took off running in different directions.

Three-car collision sends four to hospital

A chain reaction accident Thursday morning on Leitersburg Pike sent four people to the hospital, Maryland State Police said.

At 9:17 a.m., a 2002 Jeep Liberty driven by Kayla Jalain Oyster, 18, of 830 Potomac Ave., was northbound approaching Meadow View Drive when it collided with a 1998 Toyota Camry driven by Satyendra Mohan De, 71, of 13018 Cathedral Drive, police said.

The force of the impact caused the Toyota, which was waiting to make a left turn, to careen into the southbound lane and into the path of a 2002 Honda driven by Ellsworth Owen Wolfe, 72, of 164 Chantilly Court.

All three drivers and a passenger in the Toyota were transported to Washington County Hospital with minor injuries, police said. They were treated and released.
