Three men and a juvenile are in custody and another adult is still at large in connection with a Friday night home invasion and robbery in Hagerstown's West End in which one shot was fired, but apparently no one was struck, Hagerstown City Police said Saturday.

Timothy Lorenzo Borum Jr., 20, and Terrail Anthony Blair, 19, both of 1052H Noland Drive, and Jose Edmond, 17, of 340 E. Franklin St. (charged as an adult) each were being held on $400,000 bond at the Washington County Detention Center, jail officials said Saturday.

A 15-year-old boy was being held at an unnamed juvenile detention center, police said. He was charged as a juvenile.

All are charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, first- and fourth-degree burglary, armed robbery, robbery, malicious destruction of property and theft under $500, as well as several handgun violations.


Still at large Saturday was Christopher Matthew Culbreath, 20, whose last known address was in the first block of Wakefield Road. A black male, 6 feet 1 inch tall and 180 pounds, Culbreath is facing the same charges as the other four, police said.

The incident began Friday at 9:52 p.m., when police say the five suspects came to 240 Buena Vista Ave. and knocked on the back door. When the residents went to open the door, the five forced their way inside carrying handguns, police said.

One person in the house was robbed and another apparently was shot at, police said. In all, three people in the house were assaulted during the robbery. All three victims are adults and residents of Gateway Crossing, police said.

A short time later, police apprehended two men in a vehicle and confiscated a handgun. Two others were taken into custody a short time later in the area, while the fifth suspect eluded police.

Hagerstown City Police were assisted by Washington County Sheriff's deputies, as well as a Maryland State Police helicopter.

Anyone with information about the incident or the whereabouts of Culbreath may call 301-790-3700.
