SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police have arrested a suspect accused of firing a gunshot in the direction of another man involved in a large fight that broke out Wednesday night on the city's west side.

Marcelus Iberson, 24, of Salisbury, is charged with first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and wear/carry/transport a handgun on a person.

Police said Iberson's arrest stemmed from a shooting that occurred during a street fight that happened at around 9 p.m. Wednesday in the area of First and Hill streets. Detectives said a 21-year-old man was walking down First Street with three other unknown persons when he allegedly began making comments about a Blood gang to numerous Haitian persons. Police said one of of the Haitians, only known as "Sony," got into an argument with the 21-year-old man, which led to a fight breaking out. Police said that during this incident, the 21-year-old man's associates and the other Haitians became involved in the fight. Authorities said this caused other people in the area to throw glass bottles at the people fighting.

Investigators said it was then that a man unrelated to the fight walked out of his home on First Street and approached the 21-year-old. The man- later identified as Iberson- then pointed a gun at the 21-year-old and fired one round in his direction. Authorities said the victim was not struck by the projectile and all of the people in the fight, including "Sony," fled the area. The victim remained on the scene and was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening head injuries that resulted from the fight.  

Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Iberson and a search warrant for his home on First Street. When police arrived at his home, Iberson was nowhere to be found. Shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday, responded to the Salisbury Police Department and was taken into custody on the aforementioned charges. Bond information is not yet available.  

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information about the identity of "Sony" or information about this incident is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at (410) 548-3165 or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776.
