A man who was shot five times early Sunday in Hagerstown was released from Washington County Hospital by that afternoon, according to Hagerstown Police Sgt. Jim Hurd.

Police were searching Sunday for the shooter, who is believed to be a teenage boy.

The victim, an 18-year-old man, was shot five times in the legs about 1:15 a.m. in the first block of Ross Street in Hagerstown, police said.

Police did not release his name.

Hurd said the victim was found in a vehicle in the 300 block of West Antietam Street. Someone was taking him to the hospital when police stopped the car and called for an ambulance to take the victim the rest of the way, Hurd said.

The suspect was described as a black teenager, about 5 feet 11 inches tall and 170 pounds. Police said the assailant was wearing a blue/black baseball hat, a blue shirt, blue jeans and blue shoes.
