A former employee at the VA Hospital in Clarksburg could appear in federal magistrate court after bringing a firearm to work.
The hospital said the employee brought the weapon to work in a bag by accident and dropped it, discharging one bullet into a nearby cabinet.
No one was hurt.
The hospital said the incident happened on February 27 and that three other employees were in the room when it happened.
It's against the law to have a firearm on federal property.
That employee has since retired.
