An investigation led them to 23-year-old Rondez Nelson who lives on that same block. Nelson was arrested after a brief chase with the assistance of Fox Trot, the police department's helicopter. 

After arresting him, officers found a loaded gun on Nelson. He was transported to Central Booking where he has been charged with several handgun violations.
