NEW ORLEANS – NOPD officers on patrol along Magazine Street arrested two men and a juvenile for illegally carrying guns, including a handgun that had been reported stolen.

The man ran into the store, and the officers followed.

Inside, they caught up with 18-year-old Kenneth Muse and recovered a Glock .45 caliber handgun with an extended magazine containing 28 live rounds.

Officers then spotted 20-year-old Jordan Hollerman, who, like Muse, appeared to have a handgun concealed in his waistband.

After stopping Hollerman, officers recovered a Glock handgun, according to the NOPD.

While still working in the area, officers spotted a 16-year-old juvenile, who was carrying a Smith and Wesson .40 caliber handgun that had been reported stolen in Jefferson Parish.
