— Fayetteville police officers responding to a loud party early Sunday morning arrested a gun-wielding man who was in possession of stolen property.

On Sunday, officers responded to the 2200 block of Dockvale Drive in reference to a large and loud party at about 1:30 a.m. and found the block lined with vehicles and about 300 people, which made it impossible for traffic to move through the street.

As officers attempted to clear the street and locate the origin of the party, they saw Montell Darjerbri Allen Hooks, 18, of the 5600 block of Netherfield Place, in an altercation with another person. Hooks had a gun in his hand and others were running away from him and screaming, said police.

Upon seeing officers, Hooks hid the pistol in his waist band and under his jacket and began to flee on foot. He was apprehended after a brief chase, police said.

Authorities determined that the gun Hooks had was stolen during a 2010 incident in Anson County. Upon searching him, police said they found several ID cards, bank cards, and debit cards that did not belong to him.

Hooks was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and resisting a police officer. Police said that further charges in the case may be pending as the investigation continues.

Hooks also had outstanding charges for disorderly conduct in Mecklenburg County. He was being held at the Cumberland County Detention Center under $2,500 secured bond.

    My goodness, didn't Hooks know that President Obama doesn't like guns?

    Did you bother to read my post? I was being sarcastic. Laws are for law abiding citizens. The criminal element could care less, as it shown by this particular person. Carry on

    Did you bother to read the story? The child had a stolen gun. In case you haven't figured it out, registration is for those who are legit about purchasing firearms.

    Wow, only 18 years old and already he's this deep into criminal activity? How sad. He needs to serve some decent time, but unfortunately that won't happen until he kills someone.

    A $2500. Bond? ?? I really hope that is a misprint. 300 at a party and this kid waving a gun around? ? Lucky the Police arrived during the incident, and I hope it was caught on dashcam, or body cam. This young man needs to pull some HARD time. Make an example of him, and maybe some lives can be saved in the future
