The way I am reading this article indicates that the State’s Attorney said a 12 gauge shotgun was found in a “passenger compartment”
To me that means glove box. Could it mean the passenger seat or is there some other kind of compartment in that type of car..
It makes no sense
All that means is that they found it in the car. The passenger compartment is the area where the seats are. They don’t specify what seat it was near.
Obviously a Saiga 12 and drum magazines aren’t going to fit in any glove box. Gotta wonder why a writer and editor wouldn’t realize that.
The reason I posted the bit about the police moving the shotgun to the trunk “for safety” is that in the video, you can see that the shotgun is loaded and ready to go. They remove a round from the chamber.
They apparently did not check it or unload it when they moved it.
