Loaded handgun found abandoned on Rainbow Bridge

NIAGARA FALLS - A West Seneca man walking across the Rainbow Bridge Saturday morning found a loaded .38-caliber handgun and turned it in to authorities at U.S. Customs.

City police reported that the incident occurred about 10 a.m. as the man crossed the bridge back into the United States. The gun was loaded with four live rounds of ammunition and also contained two spent rounds, police said.
