September 28, 2009

HAGERSTOWN -- A 17-year-old Hagerstown boy faces charges of reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm in city limits after a car on West Church Street was shot earlier this month with a BB gun, shattering the driver's-side window, police said.

The boy, who is also charged with malicious destruction, missile at vehicle and malicious destruction of property, is not being identified because of his age.

The shooting occurred about 6 p.m. Sept. 9 when a 73-year-old Hagerstown man was driving a Cadillac east on West Church Street at Jonathan Street and he saw a group of people standing near the corner, according to a Hagerstown Police Department press release.

A male in the group was observed holding a gun and the individual fired the gun twice at the car, the release said.

The side of the car was struck, along with the passenger-side window, police said.

The driver of the Cadillac suffered several small lacerations to his face and hands, and was taken to Washington County Hospital with complaints of chest pains, police said.
