Local fishermen say they tried to “catch” the gun with their fishing lines but were unable to do so because of very high and low tides. The incident was reported to the police and the NYPD Scuba Team, NYPD Emergency Services Unit and the 69th Precinct investigated the scene on Monday morning.

According to a Canarsie fisherman, who wishes to remain anonymous, police retrieved a loaded nine millimeter gun, containing one bullet in its chamber and a full magazine.
