LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - Police say an employee of a Pennsylvania bar fired a gun during a New Year’s event after a patron picked up a table and acted as if he were going to swing it as a weapon.

Lancaster police arrived at the bar shortly after 1 a.m. Monday and were told that a worker fired a single shot during the commotion. No one was injured.

Police say the employee has a valid permit to carry the weapon.

No charges have been filed. Police continue to investigate.
