DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Des Moines police say an officer accidentally fired his gun while practicing his “quick draw.”

A police report says Officer Brady Pratt “unknowingly” had his finger on the trigger when he drew his gun from his holster, and he fired a round Wednesday inside an office at the Des Moines airport. The bullet hit a ceiling tile above a door before it landed in a ceiling tile in the hallway. No one was hurt.

The 23-year-old officer reported the incident to his supervisor. Sgt. Paul Parizek, a spokesman for the department, says the incident will be reviewed and discipline is possible.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1RJ6QGw ) Pratt joined the department in 2013.
