NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - A Virginia Beach woman has been cited for bringing a loaded handgun to Norfolk International Airport.

The Transportation Security Administration said Wednesday that a TSA officer staffing the checkpoint’s X-ray machine detected a .38-caliber handgun in the woman’s purse on Tuesday. The gun was loaded with seven rounds, including one in the chamber.

The TSA says in a news release that the woman was escorting her mother to the gate. Airport police cited the woman on a state weapons charge and confiscated the gun.
