ATLANTA - Atlanta police are investigating after a Delta Air Lines employee found a disassembled shotgun in a break room at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Police say the employee was looking for his iPod Sunday night when found the shotgun under a soda machine.

The employee told his supervisor, who notified authorities.

A police report says that a more thorough search of the break room turned up a container of gun lubricant and "tools for disassembly."

An Atlanta police officer did a background check on the weapon but could not immediately determine who owned it.

Airport spokesman John Kennedy said he couldn't comment because it was an ongoing investigation.
