[Location - Date:Washington -- August 10, 2012][Source:AP][VO:]Seth Horvitz, Electronic Musician: "Well when I took the package in from outside I realized it wasn't the shape I was expecting. And so my first thought was it might be some accessories to go with this TV I had ordered. And even when I first opened it up and saw some metal parts, it could be a stand or something. And so it took me a minute until I uncovered some of the packing materials to realize that it was a weapon. And at that point I was just shocked and confused as to how that could have happened."Seth Horvitz, Electronic Musician: "It was a Sig Sauer Sig 716. I guess the technical term is patrol rifle, but its commonly referred to as an assault rifle. It's a semi-automatic weapon."Seth Horvitz, Electronic Musician: "Some friends of mine were coming over. My wife came home and some friends, we were planning a dinner party for that night. And so you it was within 15 or 20 minutes some other people were here and we were all trying to figure out what to do. We looked up information about the weapon and realized it was a potentially illegal firearm in the District of Columbia even for someone with a gun license. And at that point, we called the police.""They sent two officers out. And the officers came in and inspected the item. They asked me some questions about how I made the purchase on Amazon. And when they determined that it was indeed and illegal weapon, the only thing they could do would be to take it in. I couldn't handle this weapon because it's illegal in the District."Seth Horvitz, Electronic Musician: "From the information I have, it all points to a shipping mix-up. There was a box with a rifle somewhere in the UPS system. Maybe the label came off my box with the TV and it got stuck on this other box that had an assault weapon inside."Seth Horvitz, Electronic Musician: "I didn't feel like it was an issue of danger of ordering online, it was more just considering the fact that weapons are being transported through UPS and that they can get mixed up with nay package, just to sort of come to terms with that. That was the shocking truth."------------------BC-US--ODD-Gun-Mistaken Shipment,306Man orders flat-screen TV, gets gun insteadDC man orders flat-screen TV from Amazon.com, gets semiautomatic assault rifle insteadEds: Adds AP Photos. Clarifies role of Amazon.com in second paragraph. With AP Photos.This is the new audience version. WASHINGTON (AP) _ Musician Seth Horvitz is used to tickling the ivories, not squeezing a trigger. So when a UPS delivery worker dropped off a military-grade semiautomatic rifle instead of the flat-screen TV he had ordered from an Amazon.com third-party seller, he didn't dare touch it at first. "When I first identified it as a rifle, as a serious weapon, I was just shocked and confused," Horvitz said Thursday. "I didn't ever really imagine this kind of mix-up could happen." Horvitz, 38, wasn't immediately alarmed by the long rectangular box a UPS delivery worker had dropped off in the hallway of his apartment building Tuesday. While he knew it wasn't the right shape or size to hold the 39-inch TV he had ordered, he said he thought maybe it contained a television stand or accessories and that the actual monitor would be delivered later. But when he opened the box, he found a fully assembled rifle in a plastic bag, surrounded by foam. Horvitz said he called the police, who confiscated the gun and told him it was illegal in the District of Columbia to handle such a weapon. He also contacted Amazon, UPS, the seller and his credit card company. At first, he said, "No one claimed any responsibility." The seller of the television has refunded Horvitz and is now involved in filing a claim with UPS and reporting the package as lost, Horvitz said. Horvitz said he believes the mix-up to be a shipping error, especially since there were multiple UPS labels on the box and an invoice inside indicating that the company, GunBuyer.com, intended for it to be delivered to a gun store in Duncansville, Pa. "I got my money back and I'm happy to be absolved of the situation at this point," he said. No one from Amazon or UPS immediately returned emails seeking comment.(****END****) VIDEO PRODUCER: Nicole Grether---------------------------VIDEO SOURCE: AP-----------------------VIDEO APPROVAL: ----------------------------VIDEO RESTRICTIONS: none----------------------------------MARKET EMBARGO (S): none--------------------------------SCRIPT/WIRE SOURCE: BC-US--ODD-Gun-Mistaken Shipment,306------------------------------------
