City police arrest suspect in gunshot incident

CUMBERLAND — Gunshots were heard early Sunday morning in the area of Furnace and Valley streets and Cumberland Police found a handgun nearby after taking Gerald Allen Moore, 23, of Cumberland into custody.

Officers who responded to the 3 a.m. complaint encountered several people walking out of an alley near the 300 block of Furnace Street. Moore, who had an active Allegany County District Court arrest warrant, had ammunition on him when he was taken into custody, police said.

The handgun police found matched the description provided by the victim of a domestic assault that took place May 13. Moore allegedly threatened a female victim with a handgun and assaulted her during a fight.

Moore was charged with reckless endangerment, handgun on person, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest for Sunday’s incident. The arrest warrant charged him with first-degree assault, reckless endangerment, disturbing the peace and handgun on person. He was held in the Allegany County Detention Center on $50,000 bond on the arrest warrant and $25,000 bond for Sunday’s incident.

During the incident on Furnace Street several people were yelling and refused to lower their voices, police said. Desirae Nicole Washington, 27; Anthony Eugene Palmisano, 25; and Latoya Nicole Taylor, 27, all of Cumberland, were charged with disorderly conduct and failure to obey a lawful order.  Washington and Taylor were issued criminal citations and released.  Palmisano was released on personal recognizance by a district court commissioner.
