Three men are expected in court today, accused of using real guns in a music video in the Englewood neighborhood.
Rodney Ramsey, 22, of the 2600 block of 93rd Street in Crown Point, Ind., was charged with unlawful use of a weapon by a felon.
Sheldon Cobb, 24, of the 500 block of Exchange Avenue in south suburban Calumet City, and Rayvon Lollis, 19, of the 2700 block of East Goodrich Avenue in south suburban Burnham, were each charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.
The men were among eight people arrested by gang unit officers Tuesday afternoon in the 7400 block of South Eggleston Avenue.
Police said the group was filming a rap music video in the backyard of a home on the block when officers made the arrests.
The other five do not face felony charges.
