A 16 year-old was taken into custody after he was allegedly found carrying a handgun without a license. It happened Friday morning on Eden Street in Elkhart.
An officer saw three people walking through a parking lot between South Main and Eden, and then into an alley off Aldrich Court. All three ran off before the officer could get out of his vehicle, and additional officers responded.
The teen with the gun had hidden himself under a stairwell in the 1300 block of Eden. One other person from the group, an adult, was found but not arrested.
