MASON CITY – Mason City police caught a man with a loaded handgun after a domestic call in Mason City this weekend.

On the evening of Saturday, July 28, Mason City police responded to a domestic incident in the vicinity of the 800 block of 4th Street SW. As a result of the police response, officers located Marcus Jamal Hughes, age 24, “as he was walking away” from the incident, Chief of Police Jeff Brinkley told NIT this morning. Located on Hughes, allegedly, was a loaded 9mm handgun (pictured below).

“No one was injured in the arrest,” Chief Brinkley explained.

Another officer said, “officers took this loaded 9mm off the street. The person carrying it was charged with carrying weapons. Good work by the officers to recognize the potential for danger and resolve this incident safely.”

Hughes was taken to the Cerro Gordo county jail, charged with carrying weapons, possession of drug paraphernalia, second-offense possession of marijuana, interference with official acts, forgery, and false identification. He remains there at this time, awaiting a court date.

    This young man is not from Chicago. He is a home grown product from Mason City. Kid was a decent athlete at MCHS. Really sad to see this transformation….. Hope he can get his life back on track because it looks as though he is going down a bad path.

      He was going to check himself into treatment TODAY actually, and he was really looking forward to it. I hope he gets treatment where he’s at now.

      So all Chicagoans break the law? So all Chicagoans ignore decency? That’s a pretty broad brush you paint with.

      So you’re saying we’re just not supposed to look at the picture at all? Anyone with functioning eyes in their head will notice his skin pigment. What I think you meant was that anyone that suggests his skin color has anything to do with his crimes is racist. I’m going to notice the color because my eyes work… and because my eyes work and I can read your statement I’m also going to g to notice you’re an idiot.

    Just asking because it wasn’t stated, but did he have a CCL? Or was he illegally carrying?

    And a fake $100 along with drugs to boot. Regardless of the color of his skin this guy looks desperate. Once he can’t take care of himself the state will step in with incarceration. These people, who by the way, can be white, black, tan, etc. look up to no good. First it starts with the ‘snatch and grab (aka people walking around staring at their cellphone$) then burglaries, assaults, rapes, and so on. River City ain’t ready for this. Bars on the windows is the best deterrent.
