Nov. 22, 2011

A man accidentally fired a shot through his apartment wall while unloading his handgun at 6:15 p.m. Friday evening.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

The 30-year-old Wauwatosa man was in the bedroom of an apartment at the Fountains of Wauwatosa, 9611 W. Hampton Ave., unloading his weapon when it fired a shot through the exterior wall.

Police were not able to find the bullet, but it left a hole in the wall.

He had a receipt for the gun purchase and a license, so the man received a warning about mishandling and discharging a firearm.
