No one hurt in drive-by shooting

April 13, 2006|by PEPPER BALLARD

No one was injured Wednesday morning during a drive-by shooting reported shortly before 2 a.m. at the intersection of Hamilton Lane and Forest Drive, Hagerstown Police Department Sgt. Paul Kifer said.

A bullet fired at the rear driver's side door of a Nissan Altima pierced the door before hitting a cell phone attached to a man's belt, Kifer said.

The man suffered a minor injury that did not require medical attention.

"The cell phone was working," Kifer said.

About 1:50 a.m., someone in a silver Chrysler or Dodge "newer model" minivan traveling north on Forest Drive shot at the Nissan Altima, which was traveling north on Hamilton Lane, Kifer said. Forest Drive forks off of Jonathan Street, meeting Hamilton Lane, which eventually ends at Prospect Avenue.

There were two men and a woman traveling in the Nissan when it was shot at, Kifer said. The driver of the Nissan, in an attempt to "get away from the incident," apparently struck a parked vehicle, driving that vehicle into another parked vehicle, Kifer said.

Police said an earlier report that shots had been fired near the Jonathan Street and Northern Avenue intersection is related to this incident. Shots were fired about 1:20 a.m. in that area.

There were no reported injuries.
