A gun accidentally was fired Wednesday in a dressing room at Lenox Square, Atlanta police said.
A .22-caliber gun was found by a 10-year-old boy in the Adidas store under a bench, police spokeswoman Stephanie Brown said.
The mother took the gun from her son and said she pulled the trigger to see if it was real, Brown said. A single shot was fired.
No injuries were reported.
“The weapon did not belong to the family and no charges were filed in this incident,” Brown said. “There was minimal damage to the wall from the accidental discharge.”
