An associate circuit court judge was shot on the driveway of his home in Hagerstown, Maryland Thursday night and later died in a hospital, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said. His assailant was being sought.
There was no initial indication of a possible motive.
The victim was identified as Washington County Circuit Court Associate Judge Andrew Wilkinson, 52, of Hagerstown.
State delegate Neil Parrott (R-MD) said on X, formerly known as Twitter, that Wilkinson was apparently shot “multiple times.”
According to the Maryland Government website, Wilkinson has been a judge with the 4th Judicial Circuit since January 2020. He was born in Agana, Guam in 1971 and later attended the University of North Carolina before getting his law degree at Emory University. The site adds that Wilkinson was active in youth soccer and baseball.
