4-year-old girl finds loaded gun inside Macy’s bathroom

An investigation is underway after a 4-year-old girl found a loaded gun inside a bathroom at a Macy’s store in a Grand Traverse, Michigan, mall.

Cody Swy said he was shopping with his two children Friday evening when the frightening incident unfolded inside the men’s restroom.

“Next thing I know my daughter says, ‘What’s this?’ and I say, ‘What’s what?’ and she says, ‘What’s this?’ and I open the door and she’s sitting there holding a fully loaded handgun pointed right at my chest,” Swy said.

Swy said he instructed his daughter to put down the gun so he could come in and get it, then he put the gun in a holster, which was found next to the gun, placed it in his pocket, and found the nearest security guard.

“The main thing that popped in my head was my daughter harming herself holding,” Swy said, noting that the little girl is pretty much his whole world.

Fortunately, no one was injured.

“Love and hold your kids because you never know when your four or three year old is going to pick up a gun in a parking lot or anywhere. They are everywhere, you just have to be careful,” said Swy.

The incident remains under investigation, but thus far, authorities have not found the owner of the gun.
