Luckily.....nobody was hurt when a gun went off in LaPorte last night.

About 8:30 p.m....officers responded to the one thousand block of

1st street.

on top of a cabinet.

And while lowering the went off by accident.

He said one of the hammers was already cocked.

Police say the bullet went through the door......and ricocheted then struck
