A Chicago police officer who accidentally fired his gun inside a station caused quite a commotion Monday night.

According to DNAinfo Chicago, the officer's gun was fired about 9:40 p.m. Monday and struck a water pipe at the station in the city's South Loop, causing water to flow into the station's office.

Photos emerged on Reddit on Tuesday documenting the bizarre incident, including photos of an officer attempting to prevent the water leak from damaging office equipment.

The incident forced the transfer of 15 prisoners being held inside the station's holding area to another police station, the Chicago Tribune reports.

No injuries were reported and police said the officer who discharged his weapon will likely face disciplinary action, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
