A 9mm handgun recovered last year in a Chicago Police standoff that left two gang members dead was one of hundreds of guns smuggled here from Mississippi, officials said Wednesday.
Federal prosecutors unsealed gun-trafficking charges against three Chicago men and 16 others from Mississippi. Members of at least four Chicago gangs bought the smuggled weapons from the traffickers, federal prosecutors said.
