Three people are under arrest and facing gun charges after police found an AK-47 inside their Bronx apartment Wednesday.

Officers working on a tip obtained a warrant to search the Forest Avenue home in the Morrisania section.

The assault rifle was recovered inside of an unlocked closet covered by a blue T-shirt.

Police also recovered 62 rounds of ammunition from the inside of a plastic case located next to a couch.

The three suspects, identified as 27-year-old Steven Walker, 23-year-old Victoria Velez and 24-year-old Emmanuel Rosado, were arrested and charged with four counts each of criminal possession of a weapon.

All three suspects lived at the address.
