Westmoreland County police are seeking a 27-year-old Mount Holly man on charges stemming from a shooting at the Coles Point Tavern that left three people wounded.
According to Sheriff’s Maj. John L. Hoover III, Bernard Lee of Hague, Sinobia Clarke of Essex County and Lamont Turner of Hague were struck by pistol bullets in the attack that occurred shortly before 1:28 a.m. Saturday in the tavern’s parking lot.
The victims were taken to hospitals by ambulance and helicopters, Hoover said. Turner and Clarke have been discharged. All three victims are expected to recover from their wounds, he said.
Authorities have charged Dawan T. Ball with the shootings.“He may have left the jurisdiction,” said Hoover, who asked persons with knowledge of Ball or the incident to call the sheriff’s office The Coles Point Tavern sits on a pier in the Maryland waters of the Potomac. According to Hoover, about 100 people had attended a party in the tavern before the shooting occurred in the parking lot on the Westmoreland County shore.
The Virginia State Police and deputies from Westmoreland, Northumberland and Richmond Counties “helped minimize additional problems with the large crowd at the scene,” Hoover said.

This was one of the most scariest days of my life besides giving birth. That the day I thought I was never going to see my sister again. I was helpless to the situation. The ambulance took what seemed like hours to come and they took my sister and would not even let me follow the ambulance. GOD is AWSOME
