Police are trying to determine why an unregistered, .40-caliber Glock handgun with two fully loaded clips was hidden in the emergency room of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Hughes Spalding.
The gun was discovered early Monday morning by a cleaning woman as she changed trash bags in an ER bathroom, according to an incident report filed by Atlanta police. The weapon was placed between the bag and the trash can.
APD spokesman Curtis Davenport said investigators are still gathering evidence as to who may have left the gun there, and why.
“There’s no good reason,” said gun safety expert Matt Podowitz. “It could have been placed to facilitate a shooting. It may have been a drop for an illegal gun swap.
