A 16-year-old Edgewood boy was arrested and charged as an adult Wednesday night after allegedly shooting at his cousin.

Around 8:56 p.m., a 16-year-old boy called 911 and said someone just shot at him and the shooter was inside a house in the 1000 block of Waterside Court in Edgewood.

Harford County sheriff's deputies arrived in the area and spoke with the 16-year-old.

The boy said his cousin, Alton William Cumbo Jr., 16, shot at him three or four times from about 8 feet away, then ran into his grandmother's house, according to Monica Worrell, public information specialist.

Deputies knocked on the door of the house and spoke to Cumbo's great-grandmother, who said Cumbo was home, then let the deputies inside.

Cumbo told deputies he was arrested earlier that day and after he was released his cousin called him a crackhead, according to charging documents.

Cumbo told police his cousin told him to get his gun, then came at him with a knife, so he shot his .22-caliber revolver once in the air, according to charging documents.

No one was injured during the incident.

Cumbo, 16, of the 1000 block of Waterside Court, was charged with attempted first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, possession of a firearm or ammunition as a minor, illegally having a handgun, use of a handgun in a felony or violent crime and illegal possession of a registered fire arm.

His great-grandmother, Evelyn Dowling, was in Harford County District Court Thursday for Cumbo's bail review hearing.

"Alton is really not a bad boy," she told the court.

Dowling explained that Cumbo has had a tough life with his mother dying 14 years ago and the more recent passing of his grandfather.

Dowling said Cumbo had a hard time after his grandfather died.

"He is a little bit hard to handle," Dowling said.

She said she and her family hoped his cousin would be a good role model for Cumbo.

"I see now he's not," Dowling said.

Assistant State's Attorney Dair Pillai referenced Cumbo's juvenile record which includes charges of second-degree assault.

Harford District Court Judge John L. Dunnigan ordered Cumbo continue to be held without bail at the Harford County Detention Center.
