CRISFIELD, Md.– Crisfield police say a man arrested over the weekend on firearms, assault and related charges was a known gang member in the area.

According to police, on Saturday at 3:43 p.m., officers responded to the area of the Crisfield Housing Authority for reports of an armed person. When officers arrived, authorities said someone who matched the description of a suspect known to police as a local member of the Bloods gang was inside of a green Mercury Marquis parked near 140 Somers Cove Apartment.
