A convicted felon allegedly armed with five guns pointed a gun at a child, threatening to “shoot everyone,” before a standoff ensued with the police in North Chicago.

The North Chicago Police Department responded around 9:30 p.m. Monday to the 1400 block of Hervey Avenue for a report of a man with a gun.

Officers learned the victim was outside of the apartment building with her children, according to Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Emma Smoler.

The victim and Eric E. Lightfoot, 52, of North Chicago, were involved in a dispute after the man was reportedly yelling at the victim’s juvenile son.

The victim observed a pistol partially showing from Lightfoot’s pocket.

Lightfoot pulled out the gun before going into an apartment, Smoler said.

Smoler said the man came back out with five guns and told the victim, “Who’s broke now, b–ch?”

At some point during the incident, Lightfoot pointed one of the guns at the juvenile and said he was going to shoot everyone, Smoler said.

Lightfoot went back inside again and officers established a perimeter around the building.

Lightfoot was arrested after he tried fleeing out of the residence during the standoff.

A search warrant was executed and officers found live rounds inside the apartment, Smoler said.

Lightfoot has multiple felony convictions and is not allowed to possess firearms.

He was charged with felon in possession of a firearm and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak ordered Lightfoot held on a $500,000 bond.

Lightfoot remains held in the Lake County Jail and would need to post $50,000 cash in order to be released.
