Soda Tax Prompts Chicago Man to Pull Gun in Store
A Cook County judge ordered 36-year-old Nahshon Shelton held without bail after the Sunday afternoon incident. Shelton is charged with aggravated assault, unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and having an invalid Firearm Owner's Identification card.
Prosecutors say Shelton pulled out a blue-steel Intratec .22-caliber submachine gun and threatened to kill everyone. Authorities say he told police it "is my neighborhood, I'm tax exempt."
The Chicago Sun-Times reports prosecutors say Shelton's gun had eight live rounds in one magazine, five live rounds in another magazine and one in the chamber.
Shelton doesn't have a listed telephone number.
