SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (AP) - A middle school boy found a loaded handgun in bushes in a San Francisco Bay Area suburb a day after the gun was fired outside a bar.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1FydzwX) that the gun was found last Friday morning while the boy was walking to school.

He was not injured.

San Leandro police Lt. Robert McManus said boy believed he had found a toy gun. He picked it up and realized it was real. He called his parents, who called police.

Police said the stolen gun was fired outside a bar last Thursday night. No one was hit or injured.

Detectives later developed leads that led them to arrest an alleged 25-year-old gang member in connection with the shooting outside a San Leandro bar. His name wasn’t released.
