Police said a woman was cleaning a gun in her Tacoma apartment early Sunday when it fired into the unit above her where a family was sleeping.

No one was injured when the gun fired about 12:20 a.m.

The family awoke and called 911, and the woman was booked into jail on suspicion of reckless endangerment, Tacoma police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.

A one-year-old child and three-year-old child were in the apartment when the shot fired through the floor, Cool said.
