Three arrested on East Side

Buffalo police arrested a man and two women on the city’s East Side for illegally possessing a handgun early Sunday after investigating an incident of street gambling at Broadway and Mohr Street.

Jamar Cunningham, 20, of Mulberry Street, was arrested and charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, after officers found a Glock 19 nine-millimeter black handgun at his feet in a car that he jumped into when police arrived. The gun was confiscated.

Also arrested with Cunningham were Tyanna McCarley, 18, of Bailey Avenue, and Tameka M. Williams, 17, whose address wasn’t listed. The two women were in the front seat of the car, a 2008 black Chevrolet Impala, which was impounded.
