May 09, 2007|by ERIN JULIUS

A Hagerstown man pleaded guilty to first-degree assault Tuesday when his trial in Washington County Circuit Court on charges of attempted first-degree murder and other crimes recessed for lunch. Other charges, including the attempted first-degree murder charge, were dismissed.

Travon Rakim "Rocky" Brown, 18, formerly of 404 N. Prospect St., was charged in a shooting at Elgin Station, at 40 Elgin Blvd., on Sept. 18, 2006.

Brown was at Elgin Park with a friend that night when Quinton Randall Robinson approached Brown and the men exchanged words, Assistant State's Attorney Viki Pauler read during a statement of facts Tuesday. Brown then pulled out a gun and fired at least two - and maybe as many as four - shots, Pauler said. Robinson was shot in the elbow, Pauler said.

Washington County Circuit Judge John H. McDowell ordered that a presentence investigation be completed before Brown is sentenced.

Brown was ordered to be held at Washington County Detention Center.
