FLAGSTAFF, AZ - A young boy digging for worms in northern Arizona found a gun buried near his home.
Flagstaff police say the stainless-steel .38-caliber revolver was in plastic bag along with one bullet just under the ground surface.
Police say it appears the gun was only covered up to hide it until someone came back to get it.
They say the gun's serial number has been checked and it's not reported missing.
Police say they don't know who owns the gun or how it ended up buried near the home of the 9-year-old boy who wasn't identified.
Authorities say the boy found it Monday.
