CHARLOTTE – Transportation Security Administration officers found a loaded gun at Charlotte/Douglas International Airport on Monday morning.

The 9-mm pistol was discovered in a passenger's carry-on bag. Airport police were alerted and the passenger was cited.

The TSA reminds everyone that weapons are not permitted in carry-on luggage. Unloaded firearms are permitted in checked baggage if they are properly packaged and declared.

Authorities say this was the ninth gun discovered at Charlotte/Douglas International Airport so far this year.
