NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A gun was found in a woman's purse during security screening at the Metro courthouse in downtown Nashville on Wednesday morning.

The weapon was found when the purse went through the x-ray machine at the entrance to the Justice A.A. Birch Building.

The woman, identified by police as 30-year-old Sara Mitchell, did not have a permit, and she was issued a misdemeanor citation for unlawful carrying or possession. She told police she didn't realized the gun was inside her purse.

Security said it was the fourth gun they have found during screenings this year.
