Bullet found on Southwest jet at Sacramento International Airport

A bullet was found on a Southwest airplane after it landed at Sacramento International Airport this morning, officials said.

The jet, Southwest flight 212 from San Diego, landed at 9:48 a.m. without incident. After landing, a flight attendant found a bullet and notified authorities, according to Brad Hawkins, spokesman for Southwest.

The Transportation Security Administration came on board and did a full sweep of the aircraft before the plane continued on to Portland, Ore., 20 minutes late, Hawkins said.

Airport spokeswoman Laurie Slothower said no other flights or operations were affected by the incident.
