On March 7, 2023, the SPS Guns and Gangs Unit received information that a man was unlawfully in possession of a firearm, in the 1700 block of 20th Street West. That night, at approximately 10 p.m., a 21-year-old man was arrested just outside the residence, as a result of the ongoing investigation. A search warrant was then executed at the residence, and investigators located a loaded shotgun and ammunition inside.
