RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A Richmond man faces charges of bringing a loaded gun to Richmond International Airport.

The Transportation Security Administration says a TSA officer staffing a checkpoint X-ray machine detected the handgun in a carry-on bag on Sunday.

The TSA said Monday that the semiautomatic handgun was loaded with 13 rounds, including one in the chamber.

Airport police arrested the man on a state weapons charge and confiscated the gun.

The TSA says in a news release that the airport’s operations weren’t affected.
