Myrtle Beach, SC (WBTW) -
Last Friday, while strolling through the toy aisle at a Target store, located at 1150 Seaboard Street in Myrtle Beach, a shopper found a gun.
The Myrtle Beach Police Department report states a handgun was laying in a Marvel Superhero Playskool toy box in plain sight.
At first, the person said it appeared to be a toy gun and there was a product wrapper next to it so it looked like someone tried to shoplift some merchandise. However, the gun was real and loaded with live ammo.
There was someone walking near the toy aisle acting suspiciously, according to the police report, but no one has yet to claim the gun.
The 9mm gun did not come up as stolen and it was placed in evidence for safe keeping.
