HAMMOND | A man previously convicted of second-degree murder was charged in federal court Tuesday with being in possession of a firearm.
Andrew L. Bolden was arrested early Sunday after officers were called to the 3500 block of Guthrie Street in East Chicago about an argument, according to a complaint. Bolden didn't listen to officers, tried to avoid a pat down and was reaching toward his waistband.
Officers used a stun gun on Bolden twice and then arrested him, according to the complaint. Officers found a loaded handgun inside Bolden's pants.
He later told police he was at the apartment to pick up his infant from a babysitter when he got into an argument with another man. Bolden said he got the gun from a 12-year-old boy in East Chicago a couple of weeks ago, according to the complaint.
The second-degree murder charge stems from a Cook County homicide.
