Something funny happened in the middle of shooting Wednesday's episode of Law & Order: Los Angeles: The crew found a real handgun.

While shooting the "Ballona Creek" episode earlier this month in Culver City, Calif., the crew came across a gun on set that had to be taken into custody by the real Los Angeles Police Department. "Hopefully that will be a headline that we can rip from," jokes star Corey Stoll.

Check out the behind-the-scenes video here:
