Children on Easter Egg Hunt Find Guns

FLINT, Mich. (April 10) - A group of children hunting for Easter eggs Saturday during a church event found two loaded handguns outside an elementary school.

Flint police said officers were called to the scene and also recovered a BB gun and a broken toy gun on the grounds of Gundry Elementary School. No one was injured, Sgt. Michael Coote said.

One of the guns discharged when it was dropped, according to a police report, but it was unclear who dropped it.

The pastor of Ruth Street Baptist Church told WJRT-TV that one of the handguns had a bullet in the chamber, and the other handgun's clip had bullets in it.

"It's terrible that something like this has happened," Pastor Namon Marshall told the station.

Coote said he did not know how long the guns had been in the park.

Police opened an investigation after confiscating the weapons.

Yeah thats pretty typical for Flint. Not sure if it is actually newsworthy since it would be a common occurrence in that craphole, but I guess since it is easter and everything...

Flint... Isn't that where Michael Moore is from? If he ever decides to make a sequel to Bowling..., he could start in his own hometown  Wink/being sarcastic

He already did a documentary on Flint. It's called "Roger & Me."

True enough. I wonder if Moore would even be surprised.

From the way he portrayed modern Flint in "Roger & Me," I doubt he wouldn't hesitate to feature this easter piece.

I suspect the guns were used in some crime, therefore "hot" and the criminal got rid of them by throwing them into the bushes.

Probably MD11Engineer.

But of course the gun grabbers are going to make as much hay out of this as they can.
