BOSTON (AP) — A Boston man fishing for dinner at a city beach instead came up with an "upsetting and scary" catch — a handgun.
Alberto Pina said he at first thought he'd hooked a big one when his fishing pole bent Sunday afternoon at Carson Beach, a day after he hauled in a 27-inch bluefish.
But what came out of the water was a barnacle-encrusted gun.
The 37-year-old Roxbury man said what was particularly upsetting is that he had his 3-year-old son with him.
Boston police spokeswoman Nicole Grant tells the Boston Herald that Pina called 911 at 6:11 p.m. to report his catch. Detectives were dispatched to the scene to recover the weapon and start an investigation.
