CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio (AP) – Authorities say an off-duty policeman in Cuyahoga Falls was unloading his gun at home when it accidentally fired into a nearby day care center. No one was hurt.
The officer, who works for East Cleveland and as a volunteer reserve for Cuyahoga Falls, told authorities that he was unloading his 9mm Glock 19 inside his home when it went off accidentally at 3:35 p.m., according to the Akron Beacon Journal.
Police are reviewing whether any criminal charge is merited over the Tuesday afternoon incident.
The bullet went through a home wall and a fence before lodging in a wall at a KinderCare Learning Center, where the officer immediately checked to make sure no one was injured.
The day care center’s corporate office says parents were notified about what happened.
