Woman finds handgun inside SUV

Police seized a handgun from inside a parked car Sunday after the car owner found the vehicle?s window smashed open and a gun in the trunk.

Police investigating the scene on Holland Avenue say the gun is a 9 mm revolver and they also found shell casings in the area.

Residents speculate the gun could be evidence of an early morning fight. Some say they heard arguing and pops that sounded like gunshots outside around 3:30 a.m.

Longtime residents say they fear that violence is escalating in the area.
