Two men are being held without bail after prosecutors claim that they hid firearms. One weapon was made to let off automatic gunfire, and they all were hidden in a chip aisle of a convenience store as police came towards them.
Authorities who were on patrol in Chicago Tuesday, say that they observed 20-year-old James McCorker exit a vehicle and walk into a gas station. 21-year-old Remy Walker was with him. Officials say that the vehicle they were in was part of a Chicago police vehicular hijacking matter.
The car left the scene when police went into the gas station. When officers looked through the chip rack, they discovered a loaded .40-caliber handgun with an extended magazine. They also found a 9-millimeter handgun that had been stolen with an extended magazine, an auto-fire switch, and a laser sight. A third gun, which was loaded, had been stolen.
Officers watched the surveillance recordings and found that Walker placed the .40-caliber gun on the rack and McCorker hid the gun with the auto-fire switch.
