A man shot early Saturday on Bowery Street in what police are describing as an isolated incident remained hospitalized Wednesday, and the shooter was still at large. Frostburg City Police Chief Nick Costello said the 19-year-old was shot in the abdomen and taken to UPMC Western Maryland in Cumberland, where he was in stable condition. The shooting occurred at 12:38 a.m. at 70 Bowery.

“Police believe this was an isolated incident, specifically directed at the victim, and not a random act of violence,” Costello said via news release.
