A 38 year old Indiana woman has been charged with unlawful use of a weapon after sheriff's discovered a semi-automatic 9mm handgun in her purse during a security screening at the Daley Center in Chicago. The Cook County Sheriff's Office reports Ana Gomez, of Whiting, was in Chicago on Friday to help her father with issues regarding an eviction. Sheriff Thomas Dart announced today (Monday) that the gun was loaded with seven bullets, three of which were hollow-point. Gomez, who is currently out on bail after posting bond, has a license to carry in Indiana, and reportedly told officers she forgot the loaded gun was in her purse.
