A second 18-year-old man has been charged in connection with an April 9 incident in the 200 block of High Street in Hagerstown in which a man allegedly was forced into a vehicle and frisked, according to police.

Justin Andrew Broadus, whose last known address was 623 George St., has been charged with kidnapping, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, use of a handgun in the commission of a felony, false imprisonment (common law) and conspiracy to kidnap (common law), according to charging documents.

Broadus was being held on $50,000 bail and Fulton was being held on $100,000 bail at the Washington County Detention Center, a jail spokesman said Friday.

Police allege in charging documents that Allen Daniels was walking from his High Street residence north toward George Street about 5:30 p.m. when a white Ford Explorer pulled up to him, and Fulton and another man got out of the vehicle.

Police allege Broadus, aka "West," was the front-seat passenger in the vehicle. The man that exited the vehicle with Fulton allegedly hit Daniels in the back of the head with a gun, and Fulton and the other man allegedly forced Daniels into the vehicle, documents state. While Daniels was in the vehicle, the other man allegedly held a gun to his head, charging documents state.

Daniels was able to escape, but while he was running down a High Street alley, two shots were fired, charging documents state. Daniels was not hit, but two bullet holes were found in the siding of 211 High St., according to charging documents.
