A man with a criminal background was caught with a gun in Wilmington.

Police say 27 year old Wayne Howard was nabbed with the weapon this week after trying to flee from officers.

There was a report of an armed man at Sherman and Lombard Streets Wednesday.

Howard matched the description and took off as police got there. He reportedly threw a loaded .32 caliber handgun away during a brief chase.

He was taken into custody and is being held on $30,000 cash bail.
