Feds arrest felon after visit to gun range

Federal agents arrested a Chicago man and felon after they learned of  his recent visit to a gun range.

Labor Spann, 36, faces federal gun charges for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

According to the complaint, Spann visited the range Midwest Sporting Goods in Lyons, Illinois, on Sept 14 with two others where they rented a Glock 19 pistol.

Allegedly, one of the individuals rented the Glock and proceeded to the firing line with Spann and the other person. Spann allegedly load ammo into a magazine, inserted it into the pistol and then shot at the target, emptying the magazine.

Spann then allegedly loaded additional magazines into the firearm twice and handed it to the others, who each shot at targets and emptied the magazines.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Chicago Police Department worked together investigating the incident.

If convicted of being a felon-in-possession of a firearm, Spann could be sentenced to a maximum 10 years in prison and a $250,000 maximum fine.

Spann appeared before a federal judge last week and was ordered to remain in custody pending a detention hearing.
