According to Evansville Police, a man with a concealed carry permit was inside the Cracker Barrel location on Eagle Lake Drive when his gun accidentally fired.

Police say the man was picking up a bag of items when his gun hit the floor of the business, firing a single round.

Officers tell 44News there was a woman sitting here the man who had a minor abrasion to her leg after the incident. The woman refused treatment from EMS.

Right now, it's unclear if the woman's injury came from the man's bullet or the debris created by the bullet striking the restaurant's tile floor.
