The girlfriend told police that her three children slept in the apartment’s two bedrooms while she and Freeman slept in the living room on a pullout couch. She said they used a doorless closet in the living room for personal storage.
Inside the closet, police found items of men’s clothing as well as a computer bag.
Inside the computer bag, an officer found “a large, gun-shaped object wrapped in a plastic bag.”

Police also verified that Freeman did not have a license to possess a firearm.
