Police: Man fires gun to scare daughter's ex

A man fired a handgun several times into the air in an alley behind the 400 block of Jonathan Street Tuesday morning to scare away his daughter's ex-boyfriend, Hagerstown City Police said.

Lt. Rick Johnson said the man was worried about his daughter's safety after the ex-boyfriend allegedly broke her car window.

Police were not releasing the names of the man who fired the gun, who is in his early 50s, or the ex-boyfriend, who is in his mid-20s, Johnson said.

The man who fired the gun lives with his daughter in that area, Johnson said.

"The ex-boyfriend showed up, causing problems," Johnson said.

The ex-boyfriend ran away when the shots were fired. Police were still looking for him Tuesday night, he said.

A police K-9 unit walked through the neighborhood, including a stretch of railroad tracks at Pennsylvania Avenue and Prospect Street.

Police stopped a young man on St. Clair Street, but let him go. Police Chief Arthur Smith said he seemed to fit the description of the man who ran away from the gunshots.

Johnson said police had not filed charges against the man who fired the gun and were deciding whether to do so.
