Washington County District Court Judge Ralph H. France II held bond at $500,000 Thursday for a man charged in an incident involving a handgun on Sunday, court records say.

Records say Tyrone Parker, 27, whose most recent address is unknown, was charged with two counts each of first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment and one count each of handgun on person, false imprisonment, first-, third- and fourth-degree burglary, malicious destruction of property, illegal possession of a regulated firearm and use of handgun in commission of a felony or violent crime.

Records allege Parker, also known as Jamal Lawson, pushed April Blake to the floor inside 220 East Ave., and pointed a handgun at her head just after midnight Sunday.

Records allege that Parker was searching for Kisha L Wiggins, whom he allegedly pointed a handgun at minutes earlier near 122 E. Washington St.

In other Washington County District Court documents, including those listing charges in connection with a Feb. 13 North Jonathan Street shooting and another listing charges in connection with drug activity, he is identified by the last name "Lawson."

Hagerstown Police Department Lt. Richard Johnson said the man's true identity was still unknown by police and the Washington County State's Attorney's Office Thursday because he uses several aliases. Johnson said Parker/Lawson also uses the street name "Blast."

He was being held at the Washington County Detention Center on a total bond of $1.55 million on the three sets of charges, a detention center spokesman said Thursday night.
