NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Most people find money in between their couch cushions, but this Indiana IKEA had a gun stashed in the sofa.

When a group of children sat on the couch and found the gun, one child pulled the trigger, firing off a shot in the store.

Nobody was hurt, and the store stayed open.

Local authorities said that the gun fell out of a customer's pants when he tried out the sofa earlier in the day. 

The police are still investigating the incident. It's unknown if the gun owner will face charges because it's unclear if he had a permit to carry the handgun.

An IKEA spokesperson said that customer safety is the company's top priority and apologized to the family of the child.
