A second person has been charged by Hagerstown police in connection with a home invasion Sunday on Main Avenue, according to Washington County District Court records.
Kasheem Kevin Gall, 19, of 702 W. Washington St. in Hagerstown, is charged with three counts each of first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment, along with single counts of first-, third- and fourth-degree burglary, according to court records.
Gall appeared on closed-circuit television Thursday from the Washington County Detention Center for a bond hearing before District Judge Dana Moylan Wright.
Although cautioned not to say anything about his case that could be used against him, Gall did have something to say during his bond hearing.
"I was not the person with a gun," he said.
Due to the seriousness of the incident, Assistant State’s Attorney Mark Boyer asked Wright to increase Gall’s $125,000 bond. Wright doubled it to $250,000.
Curtis Eugene Evans, 17, of 916 Lanvale St., was charged earlier in connection with the robbery and was identified by witnesses as the person armed with a handgun in the invasion, which occurred Sunday shortly before 2 a.m. at 934 Main Ave.
Six or seven males forced their way into the house, where three males were smoking marijuana in a bathroom, according to the statement of probable cause filed by city police. A male identified as Evans tore the bathroom door off its hinges and struck one of the males with the pistol two or three times, the charging document said.
The gunman was yelling at the victims to strip their clothing off, the charging document said. The gunman earlier had sold the victims marijuana, and one victim told police the gunman thought he had been "ripped off," the document said.
A female witness in the house identified Gall as having kicked and punched one of the other victims, the charging document said.
At least one shot was fired in the incident and police recovered a bullet from the bathroom wall, the charging document said.
