Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

A Bozeman man who accidentally shot through the ceiling of his apartment pleaded not guilty in Gallatin County Municipal court on Monday. 

Benjamin Johnson is charged with negligent endangerment for allegedly firing a handgun in his sleep and shooting a resident in the apartment above him in the leg.

According to court documents, Johnson woke up to his firearm not on his headboard, where he had put it before he went to bed, one round was discharged and there was a hole in his ceiling.

Johnson immediately rushed to the apartment above his where a 25-year-old male victim was shot in the leg.

Bozeman police say Johnson was not intoxicated, fully cooperated with them and tried to give first aid to the victim.

A trial date has not been scheduled at this time.
