HAGERSTOWN -- Two U.S. marshals injured Friday when trying to arrest a fugitive in Hagerstown's West End have been released from area hospitals, Hagerstown Police Sgt. Paul Kifer said Tuesday afternoon.

Darryll Cash, 35, was wanted for a weapons violation in West Virginia. Cash was seriously wounded by gunfire Friday, The Herald-Mail reported.

He was listed in critical condition at Washington County Hospital Tuesday morning, a spokeswoman there said.

The U.S. Marshals declined to release the names of the marshals injured Friday, spokeswoman Nikki Credic said Tuesday.

One of the marshals suffered what was described Friday as a "minor leg injury." The other had a broken leg and underwent surgery but is now home, Kifer said.

Cash was being held on a parole retake warrant from the Maryland Division of Corrections, Kifer said.

New York and West Virginia also had warrants out for Cash's arrest, he said.

Several Hagerstown officers knew of Cash, and he has been known to spend time in Hagerstown, Kifer said.


Investigators have not talked to Cash or to the more seriously injured U.S. marshal, Kifer said.

Kifer declined to release information about anything investigators found in the house or any information that was part of the ongoing investigation.
