After directing McKeown to get on the ground, officers handcuffed him and found a semiautomatic handgun concealed in his clothing with multiple rounds missing 

He's charged with possession of a firearm by a felon and disorderly conduct. 

He's due in court for a preliminary hearing Tuesday, Aug. 3.
