FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- A Fayetteville man cleaning a handgun in an apartment accidentally shot two people in a neighboring unit. 

The Fayetteville Observer reported (http://bit.ly/Sw8YyQ) that police spokesman Gavin MacRoberts said the neighbors suffered minor injuries. 

MacRoberts says Ethan Chriman was cleaning a .45-caliber pistol when it fired. The bullet struck a man in the arm and a woman in the leg. They were treated at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. 

MacRoberts says Chriman checked on the neighbors and then called 911.  

He's being charged with firing a gun in the city limits. 

It was not clear if Chriman has an attorney.
