Bryan K. Johnson accidentally shot a bullet into his neighbor's adjoining townhouse on Aug. 1, say news reports.

According to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, Johnson told authorities that he was “practicing trigger pulls” with his .38 revolver in his South Riding, Va., townhouse.

That's when Johnson accidentally fired a bullet through his wall and into his neighbor's adjoining home.

The Loudoun Times notes that Johnson believed he had emptied the gun earlier while cleaning the firearm.
