FISHERS, Ind. (KABC) -- Police have charged an Indiana man after he dropped his gun while shopping at an Ikea store, which led to a child getting hold of it and pulling the trigger.

Not long after, a 6-year-old boy found it and fired the gun.
No one was hurt, but the shots startled customers.
Ikea issued an apology and said its stores have a no-weapons policy.
The man who owns the gun has been charged with one count of criminal recklessness.
