Hagerstown man waives right to prelim in bar shooting case

December 15, 2009

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- A Hagerstown man charged with wounding three people in a Nov. 27 shooting at a Martinsburg bar waived his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday in Berkeley County Magistrate Court.

Bryson Percy Bryant, 19, of 55 Avalon Ave., was charged by police with three counts of wanton endangerment, three counts of malicious wounding, two counts of obstructing an officer, and counts of disorderly conduct, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and underage consumption, according to court records.

Bryant, who was being held Tuesday on $200,000 bond in Eastern Regional Jail, is accused of wounding two males and a female at the Red Cafe at 306 Wilson St. at about 3 a.m., police have said.

The victims were treated for gunshot wounds to the leg and foot.

During Tuesday's hearing, Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Jean Games-Neely's office agreed to reduce Bryant's bond. If Bryant is able to post bond, he would be required to report to the Day Report Center within six hours of posting bail, Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Richard Stephens confirmed.

With the hearing waiver Tuesday, Bryant's case is on track to be presented to a grand jury next year in Berkeley County Circuit Court, Stephens said.
