PORT ORCHARD -- A man whose gun went off when he dropped it inside a store at the Kitsap Mall in Silverdale now faces criminal charges.
The Kitsap County Prosecutor's Office on Wednesday filed one count of aiming or discharging a firearm and one count of reckless endangerment against Marc R. Bromberg, 58.
Deputies say Bromberg was inside the Cost Plus World Market on Jan. 5 when he bent over and the .38 Special fell out of his coat pocket and discharged. The bullet didn't hit anyone, but did damage a day bed before striking a set of nesting rope-baskets.
A couple of shoppers asked what the noise was, and told police that Bromberg claimed it was a balloon popping.
The store was evacuated. Cost Plus supervisor Vicki Dudley told deputies that the day bed had to be marked down because of the damage, and the nesting baskets were a total loss.
It wasn't immediately clear if Bromberg had a lawyer. His arraignment was set for Feb. 11.
