LOS ANGELES (AP) — The discovery of a real gun brought real police officers to "Law & Order: Los Angeles" during location filming.

Series spokeswoman Pam Golum said the NBC crime drama was filming Wednesday in the Culver City area west of downtown Los Angeles when a cameraman spotted the weapon on a rock.

Los Angeles police spokeswoman Karen Rayner says the semiautomatic handgun was in working order. It will be test-fired, with the results logged for possible crime matches.

Skeet Ulrich and Corey Stoll, who star as detectives in the show, were on location for a scene in which they arrest a man for murder.
