Prosecutors say a Grayslake man and Gurnee man, who are both 18 years old, were arrested after they ran from police and were found with loaded guns in Zion.

Amadubamba Bonner, 18, of Grayslake, and Elijah A. Gibson, 18, of Gurnee, were both charged with three counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Mary Daly said an officer observed two subjects crossing the street in Zion on April 6.

The subjects began running after the officer turned his squad car around toward them.

Officers caught up to the subjects and identified them as Bonner and Gibson.

Both denied possessing any weapons and agreed to be searched, Daly said.

Bonner had a Polymer 9mm ghost gun, which was loaded, in a backpack that he was wearing, Daly said.

Daly said Gibson was wearing a gray satchel, which had a loaded Glock 19 handgun inside of it.

Gibson and Bonner both do not have Firearm Owners Identification cards or concealed carry licenses, Daly said. They are also both under the age of 21.

Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak called it a “potential nightmare” that the defendants, who live in Grayslake and Gurnee, were walking around Zion after midnight while allegedly possessing loaded guns.

Potkonjak ordered Bonner and Gibson both held on $150,000 bonds.

Both men remain held in the Lake County Jail and would have to post $15,000 cash to be released.
