Jaleel Gordon | Chicago Police

A 22-year-old Midlothian man has been charged after investigators say he gave a firearm to his brother, who was not legally allowed to possess one.

On April 1, Cook County Sheriff’s Police recovered a gun from Jordan Mathews, 22, of Robbins, and was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. 

Investigators then traced the gun to the original purchaser, who was identified as Jaleel Gordon. 


Gordon allegedly gave the gun to his brother, Mathews, knowing that Mathews had a revoked FOID card and could not legally possess a firearm, officials said.

On Wednesday, Gordon was charged with illegal transfer of firearms and delivering a firearm to a person with no valid FOID. 

Bond for Gordon was set at $10,000.

He is scheduled to appear in court on July 29.
