A man who allegedly fired at a vehicle trying to flee a domestic dispute is charged with attempted murder.

Waterville police were called to Pleasant Street just after 1:30 Sunday morning to several reports of gunshots. Officers who responded to the area reported seeing a dark-colored sports car driving down the street without its lights on. They were able to get the vehicle to pull over on Western Avenue and arrested Maurice Watkins-Cundiff, 29, for driving without a license and suspicious of operating under the influence.

The investigation then led them to a home on Pleasant Street where they allegedly found evidence of shots having been fired. After questioning people in the area, the officers learned that there had been a domestic dispute involving Watkins-Cundiff during which he allegedly fired several shots at another person who was trying to leave the scene in a vehicle. Officials believe several shots hit the car but no one was hurt in the incident.

Watkins-Cundiff is charged with attempted murder, criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon, domestic violence assault, possession of a firearm when prohibited, threatening display of a weapon, operating under the influence, and operating without a license.
