Officers arrived about 10:53 p.m. at an apartment complex in the 4100 block of Landing Drive after receiving several calls about gunshots in the area, police said. They saw Moore leaving the scene in a dark Chevrolet Malibu that matched descriptions provided by callers and proceeded to stop his vehicle.

Officers allegedly found a loaded pistol in Moore’s possession during the traffic stop. Two other people in the car were questioned and released without charges, police said.

No one was injured during the incident. Moore is being held at DuPage County Jail where he awaits arraignment on bond, police said.
