Ricky Lomax conditionally pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a firearm by a felon, 18 U.S.C. §§ 922(g), 924(e)(1), while reserving the right to appeal the district court's denial of his motion to suppress as evidence the gun which formed the basis of that charge. On appeal, Lomax argues that he was seized by the police without reasonable suspicion--in violation of the Fourth Amendment--before the police discovered the gun in his possession, and that accordingly, the district court should have suppressed the gun as evidence.


For the reasons given by the district court in its Order denying Lomax's Motion to Suppress, we AFFIRM.
