Pittsburgh police said a juvenile was taken into custody after officers found him in a high gun and drug area with a firearm in his pocket.
According to officers from Zone 3, the known Zhoove gang member was in Knoxville Monday with another known member of the gang.
Plainclothes officers said the pair would not normally be in the Knoxville area because there are a large amount of Darccide gang members in the area.
When police noticed an “unnatural bulge on the right side of the juvenile’s sweatpants,” officers stopped the teen and recovered a .22-caliber revolver.
The teenager was immediately taken to Shuman Detention Center on firearms charges.
Police said the teen claimed to be in the area visiting a girl.
