Police were called to an apartment complex in Fayetteville on Tuesday in reference to a bullet that entered a woman’s apartment.

A woman was sitting in her apartment at 729 Cleveland St. when a bullet came through her wall from the next-door apartment and stuck in her door, said Sgt. Craig Stout with the Fayetteville Police Department.

Investigators made contact with the neighbor, who told police he accidentally fired a shot into the wall.

The man said he was loading his revolver, when he dropped it. He accidentally fired the gun while picking it up, he told police.

No one was arrested or cited in the incident, Stout said.
