A man narrowly avoided being shot by his neighbor in an accidental shooting in a townhouse apartment in the 44000 block of Gala Circle in Ashburn on Sept. 6, police said.

The man told police he had just gotten off his bed when he heard a loud noise and noticed the air near the bed was filled with dust, according to a criminal complaint. He then noticed a hole in the wall by the bed and questioned his neighbor Ahtesham Khan about it.
