Charges were dismissed this week in Washington County Circuit Court against a Hagerstown man accused of second-degree attempted murder for an incident last year in which a man was shot in the foot.

Nevelle Isaac Pierre, 30, of 432 Gandy Dancer Court had also been charged with armed robbery, robbery, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, burglary, theft and firearms violations in the Nov. 14, 2011, incident.

“The state has reason to believe he was not involved in the crime,” Assistant State’s Attorney Gina Cirincion said after the charges were dropped on Monday.

Cirincion said she could not elaborate further.

The shooting happened shortly after 11 p.m. before Hagerstown police were called to an apartment on the 400 block of Summit Avenue for a report of a home invasion robbery, the application for statement of charges said.


Officers found Antoine Williams in the apartment with a gunshot wound to his right foot, the charging documents said.

Wiliams and three other men were in the apartment when three men entered, one armed with a handgun, the documents said.

The three intruders took cash and a cellphone from Williams and one of the other men, the documents said.

Before leaving, the gunman shot Williams in the foot, the  documents said.

Police later received information that Pierre was the alleged gunman and arrested him four days after the shooting, the documents said.
