A loaded 9mm gun was found in a Target toy aisle in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on Thursday, raising speculation that someone left if there waiting for a child to innocently point and shoot it.

A Target loss prevention employee found the gun sitting on top of a superhero Playskool box in the toy aisle, WMBF News reported.

"I don't think someone would accidentally drop off a gun. I think he purposely left it there for a child to pick up and think, 'Oh it's a toy gun,' and accidentally point it at somebody and it goes off," shopper Kennedy McClain told WMBF.

A suspicious male was seen walking around the store and in the vicinity of the toy aisle, police said, and they are asking for the public's help in identifying him.

A gun control group called Moms Demand Action has been pushing Target to prohibit open carry of firearms in its stores.

"Assault rifles and guns don't belong in the baby aisle, they don't belong in the toy aisle -- and they don't belong in any aisle of stores that American moms frequent like Target," the founder of Moms Demand Action, Shannon Watts, said in a statement, according to UPI. "It's time for Target, a store that American moms flock to, to follow the lead of Chipotle and Starbucks and prohibit the open carry of firearms."
