Associated Press

Police say an off-duty Bonner County sheriff’s deputy fired his weapon in a Lewiston hotel room.

Lewiston Police Cpl. Joedy Mundell says the bullet from the semiautomatic pistol went through the deputy’s room and into the occupied room next door on Monday night.

The Lewiston Tribune reports that nobody was injured at the Inn America.

Police did not identify the deputy, but said he was in Lewiston for police training.

Mundell said the case is under administrative review by the Lewiston Police Department and authorities in Bonner County, according to the Lewiston Morning Tribune.
