24-year-old Andrew Seals, of Phoenix, Arizona, was inside the bathroom of a Walmart store in Mesa when his gun unintentionally discharged. According to reports, Seals entered a bathroom stall about 1 p.m. and began to sit down when his Ruger .357-caliber revolver fell out of its holster and fired a round when it hit the floor.
The bullet went through the stall door, hit a wall, ricocheted off a light and landed about 5 feet from a man who was standing at a urinal.
Seals has not been charged but police are asking prosecutors to charge him with one count of endangerment. The man who was nearly hit is assisting with the possible prosecution.
Arizona does not require people to get a permit before being able to carry loaded, hidden guns in public. Nor is there any requirement for firearm safety training before being able to carry a concealed weapon.
