COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – One person is facing charges of prohibited use of a weapon after a gun went off at a gun show in Colorado Springs.

The incident happened at the Expo Center on Saturday. Police say there was no damage or injuries.

Police say a shot was fired onto the floor by accident after the back of the gun was bumped. A vendor told police the weapon had been returned to them as defective earlier that week, but during a test firing someone forgot to empty the chamber. The gun magazine had been removed.

The suspect has not been identified.
