In 2009, Cygnus X-3 (Cyg X-3) became the first microquasar to be detected in the GeV {\\gamma}-ray regime, via the satellites Fermi and AGILE. The addition of this new band to the observational toolbox holds promise for building a more detailed understanding of the relativistic jets of this and other systems. We present a rich dataset of radio, hard and soft X-ray, and {\\gamma}-ray observations of Cyg X-3 made during a flaring episode in 2010 May. We detect a ~3-d softening and recovery of the X-ray emission, followed almost immediately by a ~1-Jy radio flare at 15 GHz, followed by a 4.3{\\sigma} {\\gamma}-ray flare (E > 100 MeV) ~1.5 d later. The radio sampling is sparse, but we use archival data to argue that it is unlikely the {\\gamma}-ray flare was followed by any significant unobserved radio flares. In this case, the sequencing of the observed events is difficult to explain in a model in which the {\\gamma}-ray emission is due to inverse Compton scattering of the companion star\'s radiation field. Our observations suggest that other mechanisms may also be responsible for {\\gamma}-ray emission from Cyg X-3.
