HAGERSTOWN - Even though Carl Anthony Wallace wasn't from Hagerstown, residents of the Jonathan Street neighborhood mourned his death Monday.
Wallace, 28, a New Jersey native, was gunned down Saturday morning near the intersection of Jonathan and Charles streets in Hagerstown. On Monday, a memorial of luminaires, flower bouquets and wreaths marked the spot where Wallace fell.
"The community cares," said Constance Jackson, 38, a Bethel Street resident. "We do care, not because he's an outsider but because he's somebody's child."
Hagerstown City Police were looking for Frederick County, Md., resident Karim Ali Ward, 27, who has been charged with first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and two handgun violations in the shooting.
