Officials say a machine gun was found Thursday inside an office at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Officials say a MAC-11 subcompact machine pistol similar to the one seen above was locked inside a closet at Terminal 1.

Port Authority police say a contractor was running cable in the ceiling when he discovered the case with the weapon.

Authorities say it wasn't loaded and there was no ammunition in the case.

There's no word as to who it belongs to or whether it's operational.

The office was in a secure area, away from the other terminals.
