4th graders find loaded gun at Carkeek Park

June 18th, 2009 · Comments

Students on a field trip from North Beach Elementary discovered a loaded Glock pistol on the beach at Carkeek Park today. “I picked it up, thinking it was a toy gun,” 10-year-old Vidal Glassman told KOMO TV. “No, it was really heavy so I put it down.” The kids alerted a teacher, and police were called. Investigators ran the serial number on the gun, and they say they’re unable to link it to an owner. You may remember last month at Golden Gardens Park, police discovered a loaded AK-47 in the bushes after a suspect was seen hiding it after a traffic accident. (Thanks LK and Rob for your tips!)
