7th grader finds loaded gun on theater seat
When Kolton McKinney pulled his seat down, something fell from it.“He sat down in his chair and I heard a ‘clunk’ and I looked down and there it was,” Kolton’s classmate, Levi Crabtree, told CNN affiliate KGW in Portland.http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/dam/ass...un-t1-main.jpgThe gun the boys found in the theater.
It was a gun, a small-caliber, semi-automatic pistol. It was fully loaded with a round in the chamber, Tillamook Police Chief Terry Wright said.Levi and Kolton didn’t touch the weapon. They alerted a school staffer who was on the field trip, who then alerted police.
"I'm a Boy Scout and Kolton and me took a hunter safety class. One of the rules is that you treat all guns as if they're loaded," Levi told KPTV.“Who would do that? Seriously, there’s a bunch of people that go to that theater and they put a gun in there,” Kolton told KGW.Somebody who’s “careless” and “reckless,” Wright said.Police told KPTV that a man went to the theater on Wednesday night asking if anyone had found his gun and turned it in to the lost and found. He’d lost it the night before in the theater.The man, who has a Tillamook County concealed handgun license, never notified police he’d lost the weapon, KPTV reported.
