Frye said Mosby was wanted for two separate incidences. The most recent took place Aug. 1, when Mosby allegedly shot a firearm into an occupied residence on Watkins Street. Frye said the building had one woman and four children inside the dwelling at the time of the alleged shooting. No one suffered any injuries from the shooting, Frye said.

The woman reportedly told police that Mosby was upset about not receiving money owed to him by the woman.

The second incident occurred earlier this year, when Mosby allegedly fired into an unoccupied vehicle on Purnell Hill.

Frye said the alleged shooting at Purnell Hill led to the felony malicious mischief charge, resulting from property being destroyed at a value more than $1,000.

Each incident contributed to the two counts of felon carrying a concealed weapon, Frye said.

This arrest is another notch in a number of Mosby’s run-ins with law enforcement, Frye said.In January, Mosby pleaded guilty to simple assault — domestic violence and was sentenced to 28 days in jail.

In March 2013, Mosby was part of an unsuccessful attempted jailbreak from the Adams County Jail, after he had been arrested for carrying a concealed weapon and violating his probation.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Mosby was being held on a $25,000 bond.
