NY4: Man with a gun report led police within one minute to couple on street, and def abandoned gun

Police received a call of a man with a shotgun walking with a woman. Officers got there within a minute and saw a couple matching the description. No lights or siren were on. Defendant walked into a grassy area and shook his arm and came back to the sidewalk. One office drew down on him, and another went to the grassy area finding a sawed off shotgun. The gun was validly seized. People v. Baldwin, 2017 NY Slip Op 08963, 2017 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 9058 (4th Dept. Dec. 22, 2017).

Officers were carrying mugshots with them of people to be looking for, and they recognized defendant. They noticed what was likely a sock with an L shaped object that was quite apparently a gun hanging out of his pocket. The stop was valid. People v. Jordan, 2017 NY Slip Op 09038, 2017 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 9072 (4th Dept. Dec. 22, 2017).*

No motion to suppress or suppression hearing means defendant’s search issue was not preserved. People v. Lanaux, 2017 NY Slip Op 09050, 2017 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 9153 (4th Dept. Dec. 22, 2017).*
