A crew member on the set of Law & Order: Los Angeles -- filming on-location in Ballona Creek -- found a gun as he waded through some water. Big deal. Indeed, he thought it was a prop.

A camera operator "yelled, 'Look, that looks like a gun.' Oh, look, a fake gun' and he tosses it over the concrete ... "

An off-duty cop working on-set did a double take and ID'd the gun as a real pistol

The WSJ states that Culver City police will test the gun to see if it can be matched to unsolved crimes.

Good work, Law & Order. By the way, the episode they were taping is called "Ballona Creek" and aired Wednesday night.
