MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (NBC News) – Police are investigating after a loaded gun was found in a toy aisle in a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina Target store.
The gun was in plain view on top of a superhero Playskool toy box when a loss prevention officer found it; he thought it was a toy but realized it was real after seeing it was loaded with live ammo.
The fact that it was found in an aisle geared toward children makes some shoppers feel this was no accident.
“I don’t think someone would accidentally drop off a gun. I think he purposely left it there for a child to pick up and think, ‘Oh it’s a toy gun,’ and accidentally point it at somebody and it goes off,” says Kennedy McClain.
