A police officer accidentally fired his gun on the Columbia University campus while clearing pro-Palestinian protesters from a building on Tuesday, the New York Police Department said.

No one was injured, and the bullet was found in a nearby wall. The matter is being investigated, city officials said.

Police arrested 112 protesters this week after college leaders sought help clearing the Manhattan campus – a move that fractured the school community.

The NYPD held a press conference on Friday to address the issue, following days of criticism for not announcing the incident when it happened three days prior.

“Accidental discharges happen every single year and we average about eight a year and we don’t get request [for information] on it,” NYPD spokesperson Sergeant Tarik Sheppard said.

Police in Pennsylvania said that a man tried to murder a pastor at a church in North Braddock on Sunday while he delivered a sermon to his congregation.

Police said that 26-year-old Bernard Junior Polite entered the Jesus Dwelling Place Church a little after 1 p.m. EST and “attempted to shoot the pastor as he was giving a sermon.”

“Polite pointed a firearm at the pastor, attempted to shoot, but the firearm failed to discharge,” the statement said. “A congregation member took immediate action by grabbing onto Polite. The member and the pastor were able to subdue and disarm Polite. Polite was held until Troopers arrived.”

The statement said that charges were filed for attempted homicide.
