The firearm discharged when it struck the floor, firing a single round that passed through the counter, wall and then ceiling. No one was injured.
Concerned patrons called 911 and officers from the Kernersville Police Department responded to the call of shots fired at Palenque Mexican Restaurant around 1 p.m.
