It is very hard to see without a closeup of the leaves and fruit, but it does appear to be a type of cherry. Some of the ornamental and wild cherries are not edible, and contain significant amounts of Prussic Acid, or Hydrogen Cyanide. I would not consume them unless you know that it is an edible cultivar.
