A federal grand jury in Pittsburgh has indicted a Duquesne man on a charge of violating federal firearms laws.

Acting U.S. Attorney Stephen R. Kaufman said the indictment accuses Keyjuan King, 22, of unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

According to the indictment, police saw King walking through a parking lot holding a handgun and approaching an occupied vehicle nearby. Police said they approached King and asked him to show them his hands, but he turned and fled on foot.

The indictment contends that King tossed the firearm behind a building as he ran. The weapon was recovered a short time later.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of 10 years in prison, a fine of $250,000 or both, Kaufman said in a prepared release.

King is currently confined to his home and is being monitored electronically, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
