9-Year-old finds loaded gun at movies

TAMAPA -- Police in Tampa are looking for the person that left a loaded gun in a bathroom at a crowded movie theater.

A nine-year-old boy found the Glock 26, 9-millimeter handgun Sunday.

The boy's dad says he immediately secured the gun and called police.

"The gun could have been picked up by a child or it could have been picked up by a convicted felon or a rowdy group of teenagers or something like that, but in any case, it could have been used in a crime or accidentally discharged and it could have killed somebody in the theater, worst of all a kid," said Wesley Noland.

Police say even if the owner of that gun left it on accident they could still face charges.

The movie theater is also investigating.
