ST. LOUIS COUNTY — An airport employee at St. Louis Lambert International Airport found a gun Sunday inside a bathroom on the non-secure side of Terminal 2. 

The employee notified Airport Police, who are now investigating, said airport spokeswoman Jessica Black. 

She would not say what type of gun it was, where it was found inside the bathroom or what police will do to investigate where it came from, saying all of that information is part of the "ongoing investigation."

"The safety and security of all passengers and travelers at St. Louis Lambert International Airport is, and always will be, a top priority. We applaud both the employee and his quick actions, which lead to the recovery of the weapon without any harm to the public,” according to a statement Black released.
