A Lyons Township man was charged with pointing a loaded gun at someone during an argument Wednesday night in the west suburb.

Hakim Abdullah, 71, faces one count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon after police responded about 9 p.m. to the 100 block of Hawthorne Drive to find he pulled a 9 mm handgun on his male friend, according to a statement from the Cook County sheriff’s office.

The two had been arguing when he pointed it at his friend and loaded a round in the chamber. When officers arrived, Abdullah admitted the weapon was his, police said.

Abdullah does not possess a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card.

He was released Thursday on a $10,000 I-bond that forbids him from contacting the victim.
