Posted: Updated:

(06/29/13) - An off-duty police officer accidentally discharged a gun, sending a bullet through two hotel rooms. No one was hurt.

It happened Saturday just after 9 a.m. at the Holiday Inn Express in Grand Blanc Township. That's in the 3400 block of Regency Park Drive.

The Grand Blanc Township police chief tells us the officer from Texas was in town for a funeral. While here, he was given an old gun from the deceased's estate.

As he was taking it apart, the officer says it accidentally fired a shot. The bullet traveled through two adjoining rooms.

The chief says investigators will turn over their report to the prosecutor for review.

He tells ABC12, the officer's department in Texas has also been notified about the incident.
