BATON ROUGE - A wheelchair-bound man was issued a court summons after his gun accidentally fired inside a CATS bus Tuesday.

Police identified the man as Belin Milton, 63. Investigators said Milton was exiting a CATS bus near the intersection of Picardy and Flanders when the gun he was carrying in his backpack fell and fired after hitting the floor of the bus. The bullet hit a window.

Milton was the only passenger on the bus. The driver was the only other occupant.

Milton was issued a summons for negligent carrying of a concealed handgun.

"This was purely accidental," a police spokesperson told WBRZ.

No one was hurt.
