A Lyons Township man was charged with pointing a loaded gun at someone during an argument Wednesday night in the west suburb.
Hakim Abdullah, 71, faces one count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon after police responded about 9 p.m. to the 100 block of Hawthorne Drive to find he pulled a 9 mm handgun on his male friend, according to a statement from the Cook County sheriff’s office.
The two had been arguing when Abdullah pulled a gun out, pointed it at him and loaded a round in the chamber, police said. Upon officers arriving, Abdullah allegedly admitted the weapon was his.
Officers also found he was convicted felon who does not possess a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card, police said.
Abdullah was released Thursday on a $10,000 I-bond that forbids him from contacting the male he pointed the gun at, police said.
