POLICE SAY AN unloaded gun has been found inside a piano that was donated to a southeast Michigan nursing home years ago.

AnnArbor.com reports that staff at Whitehall Healthcare Center in Pittsfield Township, 8km south of Ann Arbor, found the gun on Friday in a case inside the piano.

Pittsfield Township deputy police chief Gordy Schick says he suspects the Ruger .22 caliber pistol was hidden long before the musical instrument was donated to the home.

Schick says police checked a state database but found no registered owner for the gun. They are trying to determine its last owner by checking the serial number against Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives records.
