CHICAGO - A 21-year-old man has been arrested for illegally possessing a loaded machine gun in Chicago.
Keyzoe Williams, of Chicago, has been charged with one count of illegal possession of a machine gun.
According to an indictment unsealed in U.S. District Court Friday, Williams was in possession of a handgun equipped with a conversion device — also known as an "auto sear" or "Glock switch."
The conversion device allegedly transformed the handgun into a machine gun capable of automatically shooting more than one shot with a pull of the trigger, the indictment said.
Williams allegedly possessed the machine gun in the city from February to August of this year.
He was arrested Friday morning.
A detention hearing is scheduled for Dec. 14.
