A man found a loaded Ruger 9 mm along the parade route during the Mardi Gras festivities at Pier Park Saturday. 

Kevin Barnhart, a News 13 employee and radio personality on local rock radio station 97X, found the gun in the street as he was driving a 97X vehicle in the parade.

Barnhart quickly retrieved the gun and gave it to an officer with the Panama City Beach Police Department. According a PCBPD report officers were not able to determine the ownership of the gun.
