U.S. police said Tuesday a child fired a shot from a loaded handgun after finding it in a sofa at an Ikea store in suburban Indianapolis.
Fishers police said no one was injured from the gunshot about 2 p.m. Monday at the furniture store along Interstate 69 just northeast of Indianapolis.
Police Sgt. Tom Weger said the handgun's owner wasn't aware the weapon dropped from his pants when he sat on the sofa. The child later found the gun in the sofa cushions. The child's age wasn't released.
Weger said no arrests were immediately made and that the Hamilton County prosecutor's office would decide whether to file any criminal charges.
Ikea said in a statement it has a no-weapons policy for its stores and that it was cooperating with police.
