BALTIMORE (AP) - The Baltimore Police Department confirmed Thursday that a handgun had been found in a holding cell in the Eastern District station house.

Department spokeswoman Lt. Sarah Connolly said the incident is “very concerning and unacceptable,” and that the department has launched an investigation.

Connolly did not say whether anyone was in the cell when the gun was found.

Last month, a gun was found in a holding cell in the same district’s station house. And in August 2014, 38-year-old Tyree Woodson smuggled a gun into a police station and fatally shot himself in the head in a bathroom stall.
