PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Allegheny County Police were called to Pittsburgh International Airport this morning after a passenger brought a loaded firearm to the main security checkpoint.
The TSA called police after discovering the 9mm handgun in the passenger's backpack at the checkpoint.
Police say that the 23-year-old man from West Virginia does have a valid concealed carry permit, so no charges are expected to be filed.
The gun has been confiscated, and the FBI was notified.
Passengers can face up to tens of thousands of dollars in fines for bringing firearms to checkpoints.
