Police say they've found and charged the man they believe discharged a gun in a Fridley Target store earlier this month.

The man and a woman were paying for snacks at the cash register, when the man made an adjustment to his ankle and a gunshot fired. Afterwards, the suspects fled. No one was injured.

According to the Star Tribune, a tip led police to 28-year-old Seth Allan Millner. The suspect admits to discharging the gun, but he claims it was tucked in his waistband and just went off, the paper says.

Police arrested Millner on Dec. 17 for different reasons. They accused him of driving a stolen vehicle, drug possession and possession of a stolen handgun, WCCO reports.  He was later identified as the man who discharged the gun.

Millner has had burglary and gun convictions in the past, the Star Tribune says.

The paper reports he's being charged with felony unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a stolen handgun.
