Corpus Christi Police Officers were called and when they arrived they were told that a clerk was emptying a mop bucket in the parking lot at the front of the store, when she observed a black handgun on the ground.  She did not notice the handgun in the parking lot when she emptied the bucket, but did see it once she flipped the bucket back up.
