The gun was later determined to be a loaded 12-gauge shotgun, and the search of a backpack he was wearing led to the seizure of another firearm — a loaded, sawed-off break-action .22-calibre rifle — as well as .4 grams of what police believe to be meth and .2 grams of what is believed to be fentanyl.

The man faces a total of 10 firearms charges, as well as possession of meth and fentanyl.
