BISMARCK (AP) — A wall was damaged but nobody was injured when a Utah man’s shotgun went off inside the Bismarck airport.

The Bismarck Tribune reported that police said the man was trying to disarm the gun Thursday in order to check it when it went off, hitting the lower corner of the wall.

The airport isn’t filing charges since it was an accident and the 65-year-old man agreed to pay for the $1,000 to $2,000 in damage.
