19-year-old Malachi Russel was with Jamarcus Johnson and multiple other individuals with guns, instructing a rideshare driver to take them to various locations in the early hours of March 24th. The driver alerted the authorities, and they were dispatched to Hamilton Crossings near A Harris Dental, where they located the vehicle. Officers ordered Russel to exit the car, to which he complied, and they detained him. Officers conducted a search and found a Glock 21 handgun with an automatic switch and a front handle attachment. They spoke with the driver, who said Russel did not threaten or demand anything from him with the weapon. Russel refused to answer any questions regarding his attachments, and then he was taken into custody for felony possession of a prohibited weapon.
