Somebody had an accident.

An Arizona man using a Walmart bathroom over the weekend gave shoppers the shock of their lives when his gun inadvertently discharged as he sat down to use the toilet.

Andrew Seals, 24, entered the store restroom around 1 p.m. on Sunday, KPHO reports. As pulled down his trousers, Seals' Ruger .357 caliber revolver fell out of it's holster, hit the ground and inadvertently fired.

"The bullet went through the stall door, hit a wall, ricocheted into a light on the ceiling, then struck the floor about 5 feet from another man who was standing at a urinal," according to The Republic.

Officers declined to arrest Seals, but say they will ask prosecutors to charge him with reckless endangerment.

Police were already at the store addressing a shoplifting incident when an employee notified them of the gunshot.

Reports did not mention any injuries.
