STAMFORD, Conn. -- A Stamford man was charged with reckless endangerment after his gun allegedly went off accidentally in his apartment Thursday night, according to Stamford Advocate.

Hadrian Gardner, 24, allegedly pulled the trigger while cleaning his revolver, thinking there were no bullets in the chamber, Stamford Advocate reported.

The bullet blew a hole through his Tresser Boulevard apartment wall and entered the adjacent apartment, said Stamford Advocate.

His neighbor was unharmed, Stamford Advocate reported.

Gardner was charged with illegal discharge of a weapon within city limits and two counts of reckless endangerment, said Stamford Advocate.

Capt. Richard Conklin said Gardner's pistol permit has been seized and the state police will hold a hearing over whether to revoke his license to carry the gun, Stamford Advocate reported.
