PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A Portland couple is facing charges after a loaded gun was found at Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center.

Police say Barbara Mode and Tywone Burnett were staying in the hospital after Mode gave birth.

A nurse became suspicious of Burnett after she says he was agitated and extremely protective of a bag he carried with him.

Hospital security searched the room and say they found a loaded gun in the bag.

Mode and Burnett were arrested on Tuesday and are facing multiple charges including possession of a firearm in a public building and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Police also say Mode's baby tested positive for drugs but couldn't say what kind.
