SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Savannah State University officials say a public safety officer's gun accidentally discharged on the campus, sending a bullet crashing through two windows before it came to a stop in a classroom wall.

University spokeswoman Loretta Heyward tells The Savannah Morning News (http://bit.ly/16M8WOY) that the officer's weapon misfired during either a training exercise or a demonstration Wednesday morning. There was a class in session in the room where the bullet came to rest, but no one was hurt.

The gunfire happened in the Hubert Tech Science Building, where the Department of Public Safety is housed.
