Four-Year-Old Finds Loaded Gun In Macy's Bathroom

By Beth Milligan | Oct. 10, 2017

The Grand Traverse Sheriff's Office is looking for the owner of a loaded handgun discovered by a child in a Macy's restroom.

A Sheriff's Office deputy responded to the store Friday at 6pm after the gun was discovered. A man shopping in Macy's had instructed his four-year-old daughter to use a restroom in the store. Within the men's stall in the restroom, the girl found a loaded handgun in a holster on the railing. The parent met with the deputy and turned the handgun over to the Sheriff's Office.

According to the department, the serial number on the handgun is being checked. "We are currently waiting for the results of the serial number search, and the case is still under investigation," the Sheriff's Office said in a statement Monday.
