Ohio airport finds gun in Florida man's carry-on

CLEVELAND (AP) — Police say a 74-year-old Florida man was arrested at Cleveland's main airport after security officials found a handgun in his carry-on luggage.

Authorities say the weapon was found Sunday during an x-ray screening at a security checkpoint at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

The man was taken into custody, but no charges were immediately announced. It wasn't clear whether any harm was intended, and police released few details.

Several Cleveland television stations report the man is from Cape Coral, Fla.
