Charges are pending against an 18-year-old man from East Grand Forks, Grand Forks Police said, after he discharged a firearm inside an apartment.

Christopher Goldade was cleaning a handgun inside a friend's apartment on the 2200 block of South 34th Street on Thursday morning, according to police. The bullet allegedly struck several items in the apartment without injuring anyone or leaving the apartment.

"The Grand Forks Police Department responds to several of these calls per year," a press release said, "and would like to remind people to properly check and unload their firearms prior to cleaning."
