Police Recover Two More Guns

On Sept. 28, just after midnight, Evanston police detectives were on deployment patrol in the Howard Street area, when they observed two men walking in the area of Jonquil Terrace and Ashland Avenue in Chicago. The detectives recognized one of the men as being an active gang member and further observed a large, distinctive bulge in Flowers' "True Religion" sweatshirt near his waistband, said Commander Joe Dugan of the Evanston Police Department. 

As the detectives exited their vehicle, the man fled on foot, during which time the detectives were able to observe a black object protruding from his waistband.  The second man also fled on foot, discarding a loaded Smith and Wesson .45 caliber handgun as he ran.  Detectives recovered the handgun, but were unable to locate the second man. Detectives lost sight of the first man in the 7700 block of North Marshfield Avenue, but were able to recover a "True Religion" sweatshirt with a loaded HK .45 caliber handgun inside, said the Commander.

On Sept. 29, 2017 at approximately 12:40 a.m., the first man was taken into custody near Howard Street and Marshfield Avenue.  The man, a resident of Chicago, was charged with one count of felony Aggravated Unlawful Use of Weapon by Felon on Parole.  The Illinois Department of Corrections also issued a parole violation warrant for his arrest.
